Anchoring Clinic

Stay Anchored. Know How.

This one day clinic equips seafarers with the knowledge and practical skills involving anchoring. Students will feel comfortable with both the process and precautions for proper anchoring and be able to execute such techniques on mid size sailing vessels* in moderate conditions. Upon completion, students will be able to confidently and competently set the hook in a variety of conditions and environments.

*While we don’t currently offer this program on power vessels, 90% of the material would be the same and power boaters are welcome to attend.

Learning is the Gateway to Having Fun on the Water
