Introduction

JHH_5479_m

There are few if any subjects that generate more discussion and anxiety in the voyaging community than anchoring. And yes, there are any number of books out there that will tell you how to anchor well…or at least claim to. This Online Book is different…and better.

This book is for you if:

  • You dread having to anchor.
  • You head for a marina or mooring field when strong winds are forecast.
  • Anchoring causes friction between you and your spouse and/or crew.
  • You don’t sleep properly when anchored.

And even if none of that applies to you, you will still find useful stuff.

If you use the information in this Online Book you will get anchored and stay anchored.

John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for twenty years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 12 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.
