Let’s admit it, learning is fun! This is one reason sailing is so exciting, every time you get out on the water a new situation shows its face and you, as a sailor, are prepared to deal with it. Whether you are cruising or racing, anything from zero visibility fog to instrument failure can take you from plan A to plan B, C, or D. Here at the Club, we believe that one way to stay sharp is to regularly sail and actively enhance your sailing education.
ASA 118 Docking Endorsement
Docking is one of the most stressful aspects of sailing because you are coming within inches of a solid and unforgiving obstruction, very capable of damaging your vessel. We believe docking should be as relaxing as sailing itself, thus we offer the Docking Endorsement, to help make docking your vessel as second nature as parking your car. Apart from the valuable, hands-on practice time you will receive in this 6 hour course, you will also learn about different docking approaches and what they mean for your boat.
