Anchoring 1 Endorsement

Anchoring is an essential skill for the competent sailor, yet so many weekend sailors have never really taken the time to learn the art and science of anchoring.  What will you do if you get to Catalina and there are no moorings available?  If you've taken this class, you know how to anchor out when you need to.

Anchoring 1 focuses on the principles and practices of effective anchoring using a single anchor off the bow.  We'll practice using the three S's to Survey, use appropriate Scope, and Set the anchor.  Emphasis is on multiple repetitions to gain competence and confidence.

Prerequisites:  Must be in good physical condition, able to lift 35 pounds, able to move around the boat while underway; Competent Crew skill level - able to work at the skipper’s direction to safely handle anchors and anchor rode.

Where:  Newport Harbor, parking and boarding instructions will be provided
