In this film we caught up with Broads Authority Volunteer Ranger Mark Padfield, who shows us how to moor a boat using the “The Clove Hitch Knot”.

For some, mooring a boat for the first time can be a daunting experience. So, why not learn the Clove Hitch knot rather than tying yourself up in a knot before you go? And then mooring will come easy to you and you’ll look like an ol’ hand on the Broads.

Just watch Mark’s instructions and you’ll be away.

This was filmed on Ranworth Broad in June 2013.

Thank you to Mark and The Broads Authority for helping us make this film.
