Canadian Yachting February 2021 - 78

When traveling in a marina keep your speed slow and easy in the tight quarters.

SAIL CANADA'S BOAT HANDLING TIPS FOR BEGINNERS
The expert instructors at Sail Canada
opened up about what you need to know
about handling a boat before you head out
on the water for the first time.
Whether you will be boating in a sailboat, or power-boat you will need to begin
preparations before you leave the dock.
Instructors recommend using a pre-departure checklist to keep track of what you
need to do, to be sure you have all the necessary equipment and that your boat is in
good shape.
Check the weather forecast and refer to
charts to scout out the navigation issues
in the body of water you will be visiting.
It's always best to have a " worst-case scenario " plan - leave an electronic or paper
Trip Plan (or Float Plan) with someone
responsible, so in the event that things go
wrong, people will know where to find
you.
Remember that you are not the only
boat out there - when you spot another
boat, err on the side of caution and don't

assume they are aware of the expected
rules of conduct. Keep to the edges, slow
down, or stop until you can determine the
appropriate actions to take.
SAIL CANADA'S TIPS FOR DRIVING
A BOAT:
* In a marina, never go any faster than
necessary and be prepared to avoid hitting
something.
* Favour the windward/up current side.
* Turn before you burn. Make sure the
boat is heading in the desired direction
before adding throttle.
* Know how to pivot your boat. This is
easy with twin screws, back on one and
forward on the other. Every vessel can be
pivoted, methods differ for different types
of propulsion.
* Use a " boater's eye. " Are you moving?
When pivoting a vessel, or docking, look
sideways. It is much easier to tell if you
are moving, or stopped if you look sideways down the marina, or at the dock.

* Learn to use spring lines. In tight spaces
and when wind and current conspire
against you, these can keep you out of
trouble. Hands and feet should not be used
to keep the vessel out of trouble.
* When leaving or returning to the dock,
have a plan and communicate it with others on the boat. If things aren't going as
planned, stop and consider trying something different. When docking, back off.
When departing, gain control of the vessel
and develop a new plan.
* Don't let crew jump off, or onto the boat
when it is moving. Control vessel motion
with the engine and lines.
* Stay calm. In the event of problems,
boats can be repaired.
And finally....
* Take a lesson, get coaching from an
experienced instructor. Gain from the
experiences of others.
