Anchoring - some thoughts on the subject.

Your anchor may be your last line of defence to prevent your boat crashing into rocks or washing out to sea.

Use the correct anchor for the area in which you are going to operate.

Silly as it might sound - check that the free end is actually tied to the boat before dropping the anchor overboard.

If you drop it in a tangled mess, it is likely to stay a tangled mess on the bottom and won't hold effectively!

 

If you need further advice, consider joining a boating club, or your local V.M.R. [Volunteer Marine Rescue] group
