Useful tips for safely anchoring your boat!
- Use at least 3 to 4 times the depth of the anchor line under normal conditions, and 5 to 6 times with high waves and strong wind.
- Make sure there is enough room for the boat to swing in changing conditions.
- Preferably choose an anchorage in the shelter.
- To avoid tangling the anchor line, do not lower the anchor until the boat is moving slowly backwards.
- The anchor will dig in better if you reverse slowly.
- Orientate via a fixed point on the bank or via a buoy, whether the anchor has taken and is no longer scratching.
- Mark your anchor line every 5 meters using a waterproof marker, so you know how much anchor line you have outstanding.
- Always mount the anchor line at the bow, never at the rear of the boat.
- It is sometimes difficult to get a dug-in anchor loose again, sailing over the anchor often makes this much easier.
- With fast moving boats always make sure that the anchor is properly secured in the boat, a loose anchor can cause a lot of damage to the hull.
- Always have a sharp knife at hand to cut an anchor line in an emergency.
