Anchors 45 degrees of the bow

Anchoring while you set the anchors 45 degrees off the bow.
Let’s assume you select the anchoring position, and after calculations, the length of the cable you should pay out is 30 meters (98 feet) for each anchor.
Make your approach slowly into the wind to the anchoring spot you have selected.
Note the compass heading, (let’s assume it was 360 degrees or north), and turn to starboard till your compass heading shows 022 to 024 degrees, and move forward on that course for approximately 30 meters.
Stop the boat and drop the starboard anchor.
Slowly back the boat away downwind, while you pay out the amount of cable calculated until you are back in the anchoring spot you have selected.
The next step is to turn the boat to port until your compass heading shows 336 to 338 degrees.
Move forward on that course for approximately 30 meters while you pay out cable from the starboard anchor and drop the port one.
Slowly back the boat away downwind while you pay out the amount of cable calculated , and heave up the slack from the starboard anchor cable until you are back to the anchoring spot you have selected. Using this method the boat will be anchored while the anchors are set 45 degrees off the bow with equal lengths of cable.
Good seamanship calls for tying each cable to a different cleat in case you have to release one of them in a hurry and to save getting the cables tangled up
