Useful tips for safely anchoring your boat!
- Use at least 3 to 4 x the depth of the anchor line under normal conditions, and 5 to 6 times with high waves and strong winds.
- Make sure there is enough room for the boat to swing under changing circumstances.
- Preferably choose an anchorage in the shelter.
- Do not lower the anchor until the boat slowly moves backwards to prevent the anchor line from becoming entangled.
- The anchor can dig itself in better if you reverse slowly.
- Orient through a fixed point on the side or through a buoy, whether the anchor has caught and no longer scratches.
- Use a waterproof marker to mark your anchor line every 5 meters so that you know how much anchor line you have outstanding.
- Always mount the anchor line to the bow, never to the rear of the boat.
- It is sometimes difficult to release a buried anchor again, by sailing over the anchor it is often much easier.
- With fast-moving boats, make sure that the anchor is properly secured in the boat, a loose anchor can cause a lot of damage to the hull.
- Make sure you always have a sharp knife within reach to be able to cut through an anchor line in an emergency.
