8 Knots Every Sailor Should Master (sailing knots)

Saling tutorial
I am by no means an expert and definitely not an expert at teaching knots, but I do have little visual tricks that help me remember these knots that I find essential and that I use almost every time I get on my sailboat.

The Figure 8 knot was my go-to stopper knot, but now I love the Ashley stopper knot and I’m using it all the time.

I also cover the clove hitch, the bowline knot, the round turn and two half hitches, and cleat hitch.

I made this little video because these are all knots that we taught the students at the learn to sail program run by the Nevada Yacht Club on Lale Mead which I helped organize in Spring 2018.
