How an anchor can save your day.  This week we received a great email from one of our students.  Quick thinking and an anchor saved this sailor from a catastrophe ...

Hi Ron and Doris.
I thought I would send you a quick note to tell you your sail training saved me today. After a 12-hour voyage down the lake from Whitby to Presquile YC my engine died while slowing 150 m from their full docks.  I immediately ran forward and deployed the anchor with a quick set. It set and held in a mooring field between 3 sailboats.   I was within 5 feet of a boat at the closest swing.  Crisis averted.   Today my training paid for itself.  Thank-you.   I sent my instructor a quick thanks as well.
Well done Advantage Boating!!
Advantage Boating gets around.  Here are some recent photos our Alumni have shared.  Picture one is in St Kitts and the other is from off the coast near Florida!

Something to think about when you are anchoring.   Many people don’t put out enough rode or simply forget to ‘set’ the anchor.    Having more chain rode is also much better than line rode I’d your boat can accommodate it.
