Re: Docking stern in, strong crosswind

Even though I haven't quite mastered the techniques described, it's awfullly reassuring to know others have similar experiences.

I tried practicing with a shroud turnbuckle line tied to shroud and indeed that did help control the boat, now just need to do it often enough to be confident and understand the dynamics.

Re: Docking stern in, strong crosswind

With a 20 knot crosswind, I'm not sure that I could dock without the use of spring lines. While I've done it with bow into the wind, it is much easier to control putting the stern into the wind and pivioting around the leeward piling.
