How to ferry your boat into the dock

Another Maneuvering technique for your bag of tricks.
This is a great trick we learned in the Bahamas last week when doing our ICC license with Mark Thompson from Yachting Education. Mark has been instructing students for 30 years and has an enormous bag of tricks to teach. This one was cool. South of the dock was a shallow area and so we could not drive up to the dock in a normal fashion. Instead we “ferryed” the boat across the wind.
