Figure of Eight knot - RYA Videos

Learn with the Howlett Family, this RYA Video shows how to tie the one knot needed at stage 1.

One of my young sailors remembers this as follows:

Make a man (i.e. a head), strangle him, then poke him in the eye.

Here is a video by Gordon Perry, author of the book RYA Knots, Splices and Ropework Handbook. A bit of a shame we don't see the other uses he mentions.
