Knot Tying

Ropes and Boats go together - joined by KNOTS.  Here are some simple ones to get us started.

  • Half hitch - used by itself or as part of more complicated knots
  • Round turn and two half hitches - good for tying a boat to a wharf
  • Clove hitch - quick and simple attachment
  • Bowline - a 'sailor's favourite for making a fixed, secure loop
