If you are looking for a book explaining how to anchor a sailboat, or motor boat, you should consider all aspects of the anchoring experience. Most sailing courses will teach the fundamentals of how to drop the anchor and how to calculate the length of chain or rode (scope) required for the depth of water but there are many other factors which come in to play in practice.
I have sailed many thousands of miles over the last 9 years and encountered many different conditions and anchorages. My book “How To Anchor Safely – So You Sleep Well!” covers many eventualities and topics from, planning to length of stay, storm preparation to dragging, using multiple anchors and other devices, how to assess where to drop your anchor when things are crowded, even illness at anchor, getting to and from your anchored boat and many other related issues – you name it really!
