The American Sailing Association today is releasing Docking Under Power – Drills, another instructional video that is part of the Docking Made Easy educational series. This production, written and narrated by world class sailor Peter Isler, is the first of a multi-chapter series that aims to remove the anxiety of docking a sailboat under power, particularly bigger keelboats. This collection of open water drills makes clear the often misunderstood matter of prop walk and prop wash and assigns real-life, hands-on methods that will significantly aid in becoming a proficient and confident helmsman.
