Basic ropework course | Little Ship Club

This course is an extended Club version of one we have delivered to Royal Navy midshipmen. It introduces practical seamanship which is designed to relate strictly to the requirements of modern cruisers. It is so popular that some members have attended twice, just for the fun of it, and brought their friends along.

All levels of ability are catered for, from the tyro to the “old salt”. The course begins with coiling a rope, proceeds through a carefully-selected minimal set of knots and techniques, and finishes with splicing rope to chain and an eye in three-strand material. It runs for a total of six hours, spread over three evenings.

Included in the price of the course is an illustrated handbook and a “bosun’s bag”, containing practice materials. By tradition, a glass of red wine is offered to lubricate proceedings.

One month’s membership of the Club is included – why not give it a try?
