Its late and I can't sleep and was wondering about how to reduce 'sailing' at anchor. I know there has been lots written and commented on this here at CSR, but I came across another method that I think would work very well. http://www.ventanasvoyage.com/anchor_bridle.htm or this description http://www.fishingmonthly.com.au/Articles/Display/7924-AVOID-YAWING--HOW-TO-BRIDLE-YOUR-BOAT Basically tie a line from the stern to the anchor line/chain at the bow. Then let the anchor line out a bit to create a triangle. The boat will 'sail' but will stop in one spot and just stay there and the Yaw would be gone. That one makes sense and is easy to build. A line lenght from the rear cleat to a shackle that attached to the anchor chain. I am thinking of this method for anchoring in a bay while in the North Channel next summer. Sometimes the anchorages get a little crowded and this would make the boat position more predictable. So - I was looking to see if anyone had an opinion about this method.
