Remark: Strong wind force 6 and at the beginning gust of 7 during manoeuvring.
Pilots made a very good manoeuvring using up to almost 3 knots astern speed.
Unfortunately, centre lead tug’s line broken before starting the manoeuvring.
Second mate reported line was good but tug made a wrong manoeuvring.
The tug needed 25 minutes to recover the line and made fast again.
Then manoeuvring would been actually only one hour without tug’s line incident.
