Many sailors consider the art of anchoring to be the “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Anchoring approach under sail

Preparation: “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

Ground Tackle

Deck Clear

Crew Informed

Approach:

3-6 Boat Lengths DW

Head into the Wind

LOWER Anchor, payout

Cleat at 4:1, Check Holding, Payout to 7:1

Lower Main Sail

Anchoring Approach Under Sail


Anchoring under power
Anchoring Under Power “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Scope
Scope “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • 7:1 – Adequate

  • 4:1 – Calm

  • 10:1 – High Seas

  • Chain Rode

  • Tides

  • Freeboard


Setting the anchor
Setting the Anchor “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Properly set anchors
Properly Set Anchors “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Is your anchor secure
Is Your Anchor Secure? “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Anchoring decisions
Anchoring Decisions “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Making the approach
Making the Approach “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • Decide How Your Boat Will Lie

  • Check How Other Boats in the Vicinity are Lying

  • Decide if Wind or Tide/Current Will have the Most effect on Your Boat

  • Always approach into the Strongest Element

  • When in Doubt – Approach into the Tide/Current


Using the chart
Using The Chart “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • “Cruising Guides”

  • Look for Anchor Symbol

  • Special Anchorage Areas (magenta Outline)

    • No Lights < 20m, 65’

  • NEVER Anchor in:

    • Cable or Pipeline Areas

      • Marked by Broken Lines

    • In Marked Channels

    • Swim Areas


Use of range markers
Use of Range Markers “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • Can Use Any Pair of Fixed Objects to Establish a “Range”

  • Help Check That Anchor is Not Dragging

  • Ideal Spot to Drop Anchor is at the Intersection of Two Ranges

Arriving at mooring under sail wind ahead of the beam
Arriving at Mooring Under Sail: “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to landWind Ahead of the Beam

  • Use Mainsail Only

    • Avoid Flapping Headsail

    • Danger to Deck Crew

    • Better Field of Vision

  • Approach on Close Reach

    • De-power to control speed

  • Complete Stop

    • Mooring Ball on Windward

  • Secure Mooring Line

    • Use Bridle

    • Lower Mainsail


Arriving at mooring under sail wind aft of the beam
Arriving at Mooring Under Sail: “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to landWind Aft of the Beam

  • Use Headsail Only

    • If strong wind, may have to furl headsail, or come in under bare poles

  • Approach - Dead Run

    • De-Power to control speed

  • Loose the sheet to stop


Leaving mooring under sail wind ahead of the beam
Leaving Mooring Under Sail: “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to landWind Ahead of the Beam

  • Use Mainsail Only

    • Hoist the mainsail and let it flap

  • Use Mooring Line to Gain Steerage

  • Mainsail Fills as Boat Veers Off Wind

  • When Clear of Mooring and Other Boats, OK to Raise Headsail


Leaving mooring under sail wind aft of the beam
Leaving Mooring Under Sail: “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to landWind Aft of the Beam

  • Use Headsail Only

    • Hoist headsail and let it flap until ready to drop mooring line

  • Sheet In the Headsail

    • Gradually Sail Away

  • Sail into Clear Water

    • Turn into wind

    • Hoist Mainsail

    • Set preferred course


Using two anchors
Using Two Anchors “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • Reduce Swing if Tide Changes (Bahamian Moor)

  • For Extra Security in a Strong Wind or High Sea

Use of a buoy
Use of a Buoy “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land


Rafting at a mooring buoy

Mediterranean mooring
Mediterranean Mooring “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • Only Used If No Tide

  • Saves Space Alongside

  • Easy For Boats to Come and Go w/o Disturbing Others

  • Bow In – More Private

  • Stern In – Easier to Get Ashore


Turning using warps
Turning Using Warps “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

Take home thought
“Take Home” Thought … “Quintessential Seaman’s Act”, i.e., linking sea to land

  • “It is land, not the sea, that is a ship’s greatest enemy”

  • So … If you plan to avoid a an unexpected run in with land, choose and use your ground tackle wisely
