Folks, the Seven Seas Cruising Association has a regular schedule of webinars for its members that are also open to non-members as well. The content and presenters are always first rate.

Hello Seven Seas U Students!
I wanted to let you know about the great webinar that we’re offering Saturday at 1500 GMT (10 a.m. eastern or 7 a.m Pacific).

Happy Hooking. The Art of Anchoring with Captains Alex and Daria Blackwell (authors of the book by the same name)

One of the most essential skills for mariners is being able to confidently and safely “park” their boats. Knowing about anchors, rodes, anchorages and anchoring techniques is a prerequisite for enjoying an evening in a magically beautiful setting as well as getting a good night’s sleep while swinging from the hook.

We’ll be discussing available equipment and its performance under real conditions. In addition, we will cover:
• Tackle and Anchor selection
• Techniques for Setting the Anchor
• Scope, Chafe, Snubbers, Kellets, Trip Lines and More
• Anchorage Selection: Charts & Guides, Picking Your Spot, Swing Radius
• Setting Two Anchors and Med Mooring
• Weighing Anchor
• Rafting Technique
• Anchoring Etiquette

Go to to register. Remember this webinar is Saturday, Nov. 20.
I hope you can join us!
