How to Tie a Bowline Knot

June 14, 2011

The bowline is known as the king of knots, and is essential for all sailors to know. It is also useful for other applications as well. You’ll end up with a loop that can be slipped over a post or a cleat, or it can be passed through a ring or hole (as in the corner of a sail, the clew) before completing the knot.
