It’s an old video— dating to 2013 when the Adamants Korais ferryboat attempted to dock during a storm at the port of the Greek island of Kimolos.
It was March 25, 2013— a symbolic day for the ferryboat named after the man who is credited with laying the groundwork for the Greek War for Independence.
The winds that day were reported to be 9 beaufort.
The video was first posted to The Pappas Post Facebook page more than five years ago but continues to be the most viewed video we’ve ever published with nearly 3 million views.
So as the weather begins to change in Greece and Poseidon begins to churn the waters after his summer slumber, take a breath, click play and hope you’re never on a ferryboat during a storm.
