Improve your close-quarters maneuvering skills and docking technique.

Lisa & Andy Batchelor, authors of ASA’s Docking & Maneuvering Made Easy textbook,

explains how a boat’s individual characteristics affect maneuverability under power, and how you can use those features to your advantage.

You’ll learn to assess the local conditions, then decide upon and communicate a plan of action to your crew. Learn how to use spring lines and transits to counter the effects of wind and current.  We’ll explore a number of techniques to overcome the most common docking challenges, including single-handed docking.
