Docking Skills & Maneuvering Under Power
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? Med-Mooring using an anchor is included as an introductory lesson. 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.
