Staying Put! The Art Of Anchoring

Product Description

by Brian Fagan

This book is a basic treatise on one of seamanship’s key arts – anchoring – the skill that causes skippers of all levels of experience more worry than any other.

Approaching anchoring as an art, as opposed to an arcane science, the book replaces guesswork with sound judgement and careful observation. Everything is covered, from selection of ground tackle to basic anchoring techniques, from what to do when you drag to mooring in Mediterranean harbours.

This book will appeal not only to expert skippers, but also to beginners, sailing school instructors and charter companies alike. The techniques work for both sail and powered vessels.
