Anchoring Technique Training

I just found out that Rudy and Jill Sechez, authors of the the highly acclaimed book on anchoring, "ANCHORING- A Ground Tackler's Apprentice" is offering a hands-on course on all aspects of successful anchoring. This is designed to be a “hands-on training” conducted aboard their trawler or the client’s boat. Other arrangements including land-based group classes are also available.

Contact Rudy or Jill Sechez
rudysechez@gmail.com
850-832-7748

I have no affiliation with this but knowing Rudy and Jill and their expertise, I can predict this would be an outstanding and informative program.

Re: Anchoring Technique Training

Steve, truly an area where many do not have the core skills required.

Another couple books on the subject that are well worth the read:

The Complete Book of Anchoring and Mooring - Earl Hinz
Happy Hooking: the Art of Anchoring - Alex & Daria Blackwell

Below is a link to a slide presentation given by Daria and Alex Blackwell authors of the book "Happy Hooking".

With 26 pages and over 150 slides it, covers most of the basic aspects of anchoring. While we could never have an anchoring topic where everyone agreed ,but overall it seems great advice.

Re: Anchoring Technique Training

I have not taken their course. However, I saw the early editions of their book prior to printing. Rudy and Jill have been friends for a number or years. Of all the folks I know in the business of successful anchoring, they are at the top of the list. I speak to Rudy regularly about a lot of anchor related topics. He always provides practical and “right on target” responses.

I know the course content of their program and know it would benefit those wanting to know more about successful safe anchoring.
