Training Knots

Reef Knot

Reef Knot

Ref: Knot1

Use: To join two pieces of rope of equal thickness; ideal for securing items down in the boat.


Take the two bitter ends.

Cross them over and tie the first half knot (half hitch).

Maintain the same rope on top as you cross them over a second time to tie the second half hitch.

Pull the ends evenly to form a symmetrical Reef Knot.
