Information about the Clinic
Sunset and night Cruise Clinic Overview
Cruising at sunset can be one of the most enjoyable times to be on your boat. A beautiful orange and red sunset is just the start of the magic. As the stars come out on a cloudless night, they seem so much brighter. However, if you are outside the harbor and down the coast at sunset, it is going to be dark while you are cruising back to your slip. Docking your boat at night is much more difficult than during the day. This course will prepare you to drive your boat safely at night. It will also give you the confidence to dock at night.
This course will start approximately an hour before sunset and end at night. There may or may not be a full moon to help guide you. It is much darker on the water during a new moon cycle. We’ll teach you the best ways to naturally have your eyes adjust to the darkness.
