The stress of berthing a yacht in a marina can often ruin a great sail. This course will take the mystery out of maneuvering and boat handling. By the end of the weekend we will have taken the worry out of close quarter situations.

Course content:  Engine checks, boat preparation, crew communication and management, turning in a confined space, reversing manoeuvres, prop walk and prop wash, berthing, springs, shorthanded berthing and lots of time on the wheel.

Pre-course experience: Some power handling experience

Minimum age: 18

Course starts: Saturday 09:00 @ Largs, Scotland.

Food and accommodation: this is included onboard the yacht at Largs as part of the course fee. Many customers choose to go home or stay ashore for this course however as it is based out of Largs. The meals included are lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday.

When comparing costs with other providers it is worth remembering that all costs are included in our courses including fuel, gas, consumables, food, certification and berthing.

Optional extras include food and drink ashore, purchasing a logbook if required and waterprooof hire.

When booking with other providers where berthing fees are not included, this is charged to the customer during the course adding a significant extra cost.
