Offshore Skills Development weekend - Power Handling - FULL
Skills Development weekend from Fri eve 8th April to Sunday 10th April, skipper by an RYA Instructor.
This is a weekend focussed on yacht handling skills under power. Handling a yacht under power in confined marinas is the element of yachting that many people say they feel most nervous about.
By the end of the weekend you should feel more comfortable with all aspects of manoeuvring a yacht under power.
The aim is to give attendees the confidence to be able to accurately assess conditions and approach different mooring scenarios with a solid plan that anticipates where any difficulties might arise and how to deal with them before they do.
This course is suitable for those whose skills are at RYA Day skipper level or higher. Below is an example of what will be covered though the exact make up of the weekend will be (as always in yachting) to some extent determined by conditions and experience of crew.
Saturday night will be spent in a different port.
