How to ferry your boat into the dock

Ya gotta love this one. LIKE it on facebook please to spread the enLIKEnment.

Another Maneuvering technique for your bag of tricks.

This is a great trick we learned in the Bahamas last week when doing our ICC license with Mark Thompson from Yachting Education. Mark has been instructing students for 30 years and has an enormous bag of tricks to teach. This one was cool. South of the dock was a shallow area and so we could not drive up to the dock in a normal fashion. Instead we “ferried” the boat across the wind.

Play the animation now.

This is just one of the many tricks we have put into our Maneuvering and Docking a Sailboat Under Power Course.

The Maneuvering under power course is a required course to gain the Skipper Rank.

My vision for NauticEd is to provide the highest quality sailing and boating education available - and deliver competence wherever sailors live and go.
