An essential skill for every mariner is the ability to safely moor their vessel. Picture your vessel anchored in a bay on a beautiful day. The reality of it, though, is often the stress of entering the bay, wondering where to anchor, how much gear to use, and questioning “Will I drag or bump into another vessel during the night”. This course will cover all aspects of anchoring from choosing the right gear, proven techniques that work, decision making and choosing the right spot. Docking your vessel can often be stressful as well, but it shouldn’t be! There are many tips and tricks to operating your boat like a pro, and we’ll teach you all about it. Topics like docking with wind and current, communicating with your crew and handling lines, understanding your vessel whether it is single screw, twin, with a bow thruster or not. With our tips we will have you docking and anchoring like a pro.
