Women’s Docking Clinic and Live Demo

Presented by Hampton Yacht Group

Docking can be nerve wracking – especially in tight spaces, unfamiliar marinas or when the wind or current kicks up. The ability to confidently and competently maneuver a boat in close quarters is the hallmark of a competent skipper and requires a set of skills that usually take years to perfect. Docking is a challenge but you can learn to do it!
