Rigging Department at Norwalk Cove 

The Rigging Department at Norwalk
has hit the ground running with with a large selection of running rigging in different colors, rigging wire for masts and lifelines, and hardware for power and sailboat lifelines and rigging. Click HERE for details.
Docking 101
  • Rule # 1:  Approach the dock at the speed you are willing to hit it! 
  • Rig your docking lines and fenders BEFORE you get to the dock. (under the railings or lifelines)          
  • Practice, Practice, Practice.... learn how your boat handles - without wind and with both wind and current.
  • Bring the amidships springline off the boat first, and remember that a wrap on the cleat can stop the boat - you pulling on the line cannot.
  • Helmsman, really watch your crew and apply power in very small bursts.
  •  Practice, Practice, Practice....  (did we say that?) 
  • No laughing when your neighbor "blows it" - it will be your turn next time.  Do offer a helping hand.

Individual development and team work sail side by side in Ship 6.  With an active program, sailing from April to November each year, Ship 6 exposes the crew to the broad spectrum of the boating environment and teaches the skills necessary to not merely survive in this environment but to thrive and excel in it!
