Re: Going ashore while on the hook
I consider anchoring to be the most important skill one needs to learn for cruising (do sailing schools teach anchoring?).
I don't know about US sailing schools.... I have done formal training in UK under RYA (day skipper and coastal skipper) and nothing practical on anchoring techniques was included. My knowledge (or lack of) is down to experience and reading.
