Our one Day Boat Handling Course is designed to build confidence in close quarter handling.
The day focuses specifically on all aspects of mooring and manoeuvring a yacht in a modern tightly packed marina as well as picking up river pile moorings and buoys.
The River Hamble is the ideal location to practice in a wide range of conditions and tidal strengths. The yachts we use are modern production yacht between 36 & 38 feet with wheel steering and typical handling characteristics to mosts yachts you will come across.
As this is a practical course & nothing beats doing it for yourself. We therefore deliberately restrict student numbers down to a maximum of 4.
This allows plenty of hands on experience and gives you time to watch and learn from everyone else onboard.
By the end of the day you will have had chance to practice and watch all manner of parking scenarios after which the rest is down to you to practice and master the skills you have learnt.
This practical course is excellent preparation if you are planning on taking your Day Skipper Course.
