Docking Skills Clinic
Confidence in Close Quarters
Want to be able to back in to a slip, land confidently at a busy fuel dock, and pick up that mooring in a crosswind? This is the skill that so many sailors say they need more work on. You’ll get the training here.
Two steps when you register:
1. Complete the Maneuvering Under Power online course prior to our day on the water. Details sent upon registration. There is a discount if this is your second time in the class.
2. On the water practice. You'll refine your skills in docking at slips, side-ties, and pump-out stations; maneuvering in reverse; backing in to a slip or side tie; springing off a lee wall; using prop-walk and prop-wash for pivot turns and fine control; picking up a mooring; backing in to a quay; recovering when things go wrong.
