How to Tie a Clove Hitch | Boating


Hi, my name is Toby Stull and I’m captain
with Out in the Water Sailing. We’re an adventure sports sailing company,
providing charters, sailing lessons, vessel training and consulting. Please visit our website at www.out-sailing.com. We’re here today in Liberty Harbor to talk
about boating. When you are coming into a dock, sometimes
there will not be a cleat to tie to. In such incidence, we either have to tie to
a post or to a piling like this. Lot of time when that happens we use a clove
hitch. To tie a clove hitch make sure that you have
enough line tail to go around the post 2-3 times. Wrap your line around the post or piling and
take the end underneath the leading side of the line, wrap it around again and make sure
your end goes through that second loop, now we are secure with a clove hitch.
