This training is designed for Skippers to learn the basic steps of departing and berthing at a marina. For many the challenges that handling a vessel in close proximity to other vessels can create a degree of stress and concern. Spending time just focusing on handling your vessel when berthing at a marina, mooring or, docking alongside a wharf, is time well spent, irrespective of how long you have been boating.
