At Broad Reach Sailing School, we also offer boat handling weekends that are aimed at giving you more confidence with general boat handling under power and sail. We will spend time practicing different berthing situations in the Solent marina including the more “tricky” stuff! We will also look at sailing onto moorings and MOB undersail. Don’t be put off if you think you are not ready to start sailing onto a pontoon!! The weekend is for everyone to gain more experience and is based at our Sailing School in the Solent.
Here are just some of the things we can cover on Skills & Drills weekends.
- Berthing manouvers
- Close quater boat handling
- Dealing with tide in marinas
- Boat handling under sail
- Sail trim
- Pilotage and passage planning
Apart from improving on your sailing skills we head to one of the many marinas in the Solent for the evening and a crew meal ashore.
