Focus points on this clinic: Edging- holding it with comfort and control. Brush up on the maneuvering strokes that go with this.

Stern Rudders- for those who want to move to more advanced, we can tow each other and practice this awesome stroke.

There’s much more to maneuvering your boat than just forward, reverse, and braking on one side to turn. Learning the maneuvering strokes allows you to control your boat better in wind or waves, or simply to make the boat go where you want it with the least amount of effort.
