Anchoring with two anchors

In this lesson you will learn to anchor using two anchors.
There are two popular methods that cover most situations:
a) Anchoring with the anchors set 180 degrees from each other and
b) anchoring with the anchors set 45 degrees off the bow.
Anchoring by setting the anchors 180 degrees from each other reduces the swinging circle and works very well when the wind direction remains constant or changes direction 180 degrees , or in a current that reverses direction, or in a narrow stream.
Anchoring while you set the anchors 45 degrees off the bow improves holding power.
One anchor works as a backup if the other drags, and the load is shared between the two anchors.
This also works well when the wind significantly changes direction.
