On page 1 of Mooring Procedures: "Grabbing a mooring ball needs to be preplanned. It is best achieved if you motor the vessel into wind towards the mooring ball." A bit later is a different example, regarding the ball with a steel ring on top: ". . . back your boat up to the mooring with aft facing the wind." Q 5/13 on the test: When grabbing a mooring: the correct answer shows: "approach from downwind." I'm confused with terminology. I thought 'downwind' meant with the wind behind. So, pointing the vessel into wind = downwind?
