Yacht handling under Power


The sail yacht handling course will go a long way to relieving those feelings of apprehension when the time comes to carry out a manoeuvre in a tight marina or in windy conditions. Your experienced instructor will explain the main factors that affect how a yacht handles under power and armed with this information you will have the chance to put theory into practice in a variety of situations.

You will come away with a better understanding of how windage, prop walk, tide, and prop wash effect your yacht and indeed can in many cases be harnessed to help you pull off a perfect manoeuvre. We are often asked about ways to moor up when short handed so time will also be spent looking at various methods to help.
