Boat Handling

Refresher Boat Handling Course

(An opportunity to join with some members on a course to refine their ‘boat handling skills’)

HYC and Seacraft (David Jerrard) are offering members the chance to polish their boat-handling skills. Topics already suggested include:

- Berthing/casting-off in different conditions of wind and tide

- Mediterranean mooring

- Man Overboard (sail and power)

- Reefing and heaving-to

- Close-quarters maneuvering

Each session will be 2.5hrs long, with a pre-agreed list of refresher topics and a maximum of 3 people per boat. The cost is €100 per person, based on groups of 3 people at a time.

Interested members should advise their interest to Karen in the HYC Office (, stating their preferred date(s) and topics. A schedule will then be drawn up and circulated and bookings can then be made.
