Practical on-the-Water Training course

June 14, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Buzzards Bay Sail and Power Squadron is offering this course.

Do you fear docking your boat?
Do you think it is much easier to parallel park a car than dock a boat?
Do you have trouble leaving a dock with a wind pushing you onto the dock?
Is it a mystery why your boat behaves like it does?

This is an 8-hour program with the perfect combination of introductory classroom training and hands-on on the water training. It provides an explanation of how your boat handles and why.  Video clips let you visualize the maneuvers prior to your practicing them on the water.  It covers the use of lines, departing from a dock, operating in a fairway, pivoting, mooring, backing, docking, steering, slalom, holding course, running a range, and stopping quickly.

Time: Seminar Friday Evening  6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
