Basic Harbour Manoeuvres

Giornale della Vela 10 minutes

In this course, you will learn the basic tricks for not being stuck in port with an unmanageable boat, and practical schemes to get by in four difficult situations.

The manoeuvres in port are often the most complex of the whole sailing cruise, because it is necessary to manoeuvre in confined spaces, and if something goes wrong, you risk doing considerable damage to other boats.

The crew must be fully aware of what will happen during the manoeuvres in port because they can only be of help if they understand how the manoeuvre will take place and what to do. For this reason, this course is ideal for both experienced skippers, who will be able to grasp some techniques and some tricks, and for beginners.

Giornale della Vela

Il Giornale della Vela was born in 1975 from an idea of Mario Oriani, namely to create the first newspaper for sailing and yachting enthusiasts in Italy. Over the years it has established itself as the leading monthly magazine in the sector and has broadened its horizons in related events and services.
