Rick Ellis

Whether you’re single-handed, a couple, or you regularly rely on crew, this workshop is designed for you. Instructor Rick Ellis, who also delivers our very popular Psychology of Voyaging workshops, lends his years of boating experience and professional facilitation expertise to help you Build Your Docking Skills. This workshop, which includes theory and practice, will build confidence in your ability to skillfully approach and leave a dock, either single-handled or working and communicating with other(s).

Registration includes all three parts.

  1. Workshop 1 – theory, best practices, tips, and techniques to get the boat on and off the dock efficiently and safely – 4 hrs classroom
  2. Practice on your boat (two weeks, self-directed)
  3. Review workshop 2 – review of practice and what you learned about your boat and yourself, problem solving, what worked and what didn’t –  3 hrs classroom
