Known issue. You have to chase it down. Most likely you left the thrusters on the main ship when you undocked.

If you have tried a few times and still can not get it, catch one of us old dudes in chat and we can try to help you through the issue.

My method, which works well is to warp to the ship beacon then very slowly, using short bursts of the thrusters, move closer to the host vessel. Try and manoeuvre to the rear of the host vessel and approach it from above and in line with the centreline of the host vessel. As you get closer angle the Hawk nose down, aiming for the middle of the host vessel. When you are quite close, raise the nose of the Hawk and right click on the hose vessel. If you are close enough, you should dock.

You can only dock when you are directly above the host vessel and facing forward; that is matching the facing of the host vessel. This is why approaching from behind is a good tactic; as it gets your lined up correctly.

As RAM says, if you are still having difficult, call on a vet player thst may be able to help.
