Docking Skills Clinic
Down the narrow fairway, the slip is to starboard
Confidence in Close Quarters
Do you want to be able to back in to a slip, land confidently at a busy fuel dock, turn the boat around in its own length, and spring off when the wind is blowing you onto the side tie and you’re penned in by boats behind and in front of you? These are the skills that so many sailors say they need more work on. You’ll get these capabilities in the Docking Skills Clinic.
Two steps when you register:
- Complete the Maneuvering Under Power online course (included) prior to our day on the water. Details sent upon registration. There is a discount if this is your second time in the class.
- 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; recovering when things go wrong.
