Re: pulled anchor and sailed away...

I've done this any number of times, especially when anchored in a relatively open cove and the winds are favorable. I usually put the main sail up before raising the anchor, mainly because it's easy to do and I leave the main sheet a bit loose so the boat can swing a bit without effecting anything. As soon as I'm back in the cockpit, the main is sheeted, the jib unfurled and I'm on my way to somewhere.
