This section of the website will let you know all boat manoeuvring techniques, by teaching you the best way to manage your boat in all weather conditions: from sailing techniques to how to enter a harbour, approach a mooring or a dock and finally sail.
In the second part, we will show you anchor mooring techniques: the most suitable anchor for your boat, how to recognise the best anchoring point and achieve the main sailors aim, that is to anchor in a remote quiet haven!
