A course dedicated to enthusiasts, shipowners and skippers who want to gain confidence with manouvers in the port and in roadstead areas. We will deal with the more or less common mooring situations through practical tests and theoretical workshops on board of 40, 45 and 50 feet boats, to share and experience firsthand every aspect of this delicate phase. Controlling the boat in tight spaces, executing a mooring manouver with serenity or silently entering the designated mooring will no longer be a problem, but fun.
