Re: What strategy do you employ when using a drogue
We always tow our 'drogue anchor' in the second wave behind boat (100ft+).
We can see it in clear water.
This 3 Kilo claw anchor is easy to retrieve with the a main sheet winch.
Clear distinctions need to be made between 'drogues' deployed to improve steering at hull speed (what we do) and drogues to primarily reduce speed in surfing conditions.
