Topics covered on the course will include:-

· Boat speed control in all wind directions

· Heaving to and reefing afloat

· Man overboard, picking up a mooring

· Anchoring

· Windward and lee shore landing

A good knowledge of all of these will help you with your general sailing and give you confidence when sailing elsewhere and in a different boat.
