What is the best anchor? If you ask this to sailors on the internet, be sure to have popcorn ready for the drama that follows. Anchor types like all gear for cruising, have pros and cons. Mr. Salty’s “must have” anchor might be best where he sails, while totally missing the context of YOUR cruising plans. This class will teach you how to assess gear choices for practical and financial suitability for YOUR boat, crew, and cruising intentions.  All anchors, sails, safety gear, dinghy, electronics, etc. have compromises, but are the ones you can live with.
