This is a free course on anchoring techniques featuring anchors, seabeds, trip lines and of course the Mediterranean mooring manoeuvre. It is vitally important to have expert anchoring skills:
- Anchoring is about safety. Under the very worst conditions - when leaving the anchorage or port is dangerous - you should be able to rely on your anchor system.
- In the east Mediterranean - Greece and Turkey - more time is spent at anchor than under sail and you will predominantly anchor off the quay while “stern to” (rarely “bows to”): berthing Mediterranean style.
