America’s Boating Club 2022 Classes

FREE Anchoring Workshop hosted by America’s Boating Club, Portsmouth – also known as Portsmouth Sail and Power Squadron.  We specialize in teaching boating courses in the off-season

When:  October 11, 7:00 to 9:00 PM


Where:  Portsmouth High School, Room 242, 50 Andrew Jarvis Dr, Portsmouth, NH 03801

In our introductory boating classes we teach lowering the anchor while drifting/motoring backwards, letting out enough scope, then setting the anchor.  This works in a lot of places – most of the time.  


This workshop addresses the more challenging conditions on the New England tidal coast, and handling emergencies – when the anchor(s) MUST hold.  It is meant to supplement our Online Boat Handling Course ($67.50) – but this FREE Workshop is open to all.


A follow-on FREE Line Handling and Knots Workshop

will be held at Portsmouth High School October 25 7:00 to 9:00 PM


This workshop addresses line handling while anchoring and docking under the more challenging conditions on the New England tidal coast.  It is a more hands-on coaching session to follow the Anchoring Workshop.
