27' Catalina (the Smacktanic). We had to wait for just the right wind to pull it off as it is usually on our nose. And we had a bottleneck at one point of about 18' where two docks were squeezed together - so no room for error. Luckily it went like butta.

I do need a lot more practice though.

I dock under sail better than I do power
Propwalk still screws me up.

The largest boat I docked under sail was a charter 35' in Annapolis. Engine worked just fine until we needed to start it to come in. Nothing. We docked under sail no problem and later discovered that the battery terminal had come off.

I did sail my 22' for an entire season with no engine. We sailed up a narrow channel to enter the creek and dock. I figured the British Blockaded the French Coast before the advent of engines and those ships had far less weather ability. Never needed to be towed in.

Before we switched out the Westerbroke, it was an (almost) annual event.

Not fun at all.

The line from the main winch to the cleat on the dock has become my best friend.

Not myself, but I have seen Cpt. Jim Sharp dock the 122' schooner Adventure under sail, in through Camden harbor in the summer, he did that at least once a year, very inpressive.

I docked my 37' Gulfstar under sail after the engine quit. It was only my 3rd time docking it (or any boat over 16') ever! Full story already documented here.

I was wondering whether someone was going to mention seeing one of the maine windjammers docked under sail. When I worked aboard one, we watched the Heritage (94' on deck) do it. It also wasn't uncommon for the boats to sail into the raftups that we would have. Boy do vessel's with 100+ tons of displacement carry their way.

Personally, my largest was a 48' boat with a blown transmission. Certain points of sail, it isn't bad at all but others, no thanks.

34foot cat, windward slip, SF Bay (means frequent 20+kts into the slip). The engine (outboard) controls were no-where near the hull-side helm. After some practice, it was just so much easier to use a spring line to stop the boat than to try to get some assist from the outboard in reverse... When it worked, I left it in neutral but always came in under bare-poles.

I actually met Case in Telegraph Harbour.
