Boat Handling

Arguably one of the most important skills for any skipper is berthing the vessel and leaving the berth in any conditions and lowered visibility.

Join us on unique course focused on pontoon and mooring practices led by one of our most experienced senior instructors.

All your questions will be answered during the course and you will get the opportunity of extremely extensive training and practise of handling the vessel in any conditions.

Take stress away from those approaches in harsh conditions or night time.

  • weather conditions and forecast
  • the correct use of lines and fenders
