For those wishing to build confidence and experience in handling a catamaran under power in the confines of a marina, the catamaran boat handling day focusses on improving existing skills in reasonably strong tidal conditions.
To avoid throwing members in at the deep end, this course is run on dates when the tides are mid-way between Springs and Neaps, giving stronger tidal flows, but not making it unmanageable from a teaching perspective.
