A lot will depend on where and how you must dock and whether or not you are single handed.
As long as you bring her in slowly and safely without hitting the dock or other boats, you'll be fine.Our experience has been that there is always someone at the dock and nine times out of ten they have been waiting to help or handle the lines for us.
If you're self conscious about docking remember everyone started out with no experience.
Don't be afraid to get it wrong a few times before you get the hang of docking.
Don't be afraid to ask for help or even advice.
Assuming you are still in BC, CYA has a good course on Navigation that gets into tides and currents. Theses courses may even carry weight with some insurance companies.
