After a summer working on the boat, I left for our wedding in Santa fe New Mexico. Lisa and I had been apart for most of two months. Talk about a hard way to plan a wedding. Everything went smoothly and we returned to the boat for our honeymoon in the San Juans
We started with a little training on Docking with our instructor Tim Hoving. Tim is a certified catamaran instructor with San Juan Sailing. We hired him to work on our docking skills. He emphasizes getting attached to the dock without getting off of the boat.
The big lesson of the day was throw the line on both sides of the cleat buy having the coil split between the two hands. Then pull in the unattached side to connect to the dock.. We did the practice with our head phones on.
