Royal Perth Yacht Club welcomes all Ladies to join us for the Ladies in the Bay - Keelboat Tricky Skills Development.

Keelboat Tricky Skills Development Course

Are you a bit anxious when picking up a mooring or even worse picking up a lost crew?
Here is your golden opportunity to join us to get all of these things sorted! Whilst the topics listed below are all pretty serious we are going to have heaps of fun conquering the skills.

We are going to blitz: MOB, picking up a mooring, coming alongside jetty and securing a boat, leaving and returning to pen, a couple of handy knots and finally coming alongside another boat.

To celebrate our numerous successes we will finish with a de-briefing in the Wardroom.
