Most sailors already know these points, but we got a kick out of this blog and the title pretty much says it all. Our Kirkland sailors will especially appreciate the first point, “Parallel Parking” with docking at the city Pier!
1. Parallel parking
I know, I know. You’re great at parallel parking. You should be the president of it. The words three-point turn don’t even exist in your vocabulary. But you’re an amateur. Try backing a fire truck (without rearview mirrors) into a car wash, on ground made of water, during a thunderstorm. That’s what sailors do. They call it docking.
