One aspect of sailing is to confidently arrive in an unknown anchorage and secure the vessel safely for the night, maximising your down-time after a day sailing, without the worry of “have I done it right?”.

This course covers the sailing aspect in detail but also covers the importance of provisioning, anchoring and watch keeping.
