There was no marina so almost all cruising boats at Domburg anchored in the muddy tidal river. The current was strong on both flood and ebb tides, rotating anchors 180 degrees four times per day. Setting anchors properly was tricky but important. Ed and Sofia had a mooring for "Argo" where they lived for several years. While we were there this very friendly couple sold their boat and returned to Holland.
