Re: sideways on anchor?

This is common on fin keel boats with moderate to excessive freeboard. The boat is sailing up the anchor rode.

Minor changes to the anchor configuration can make a big difference. Try adjusting the scope (keeping it in the safe limits of course), using a bridle between the two bow cleats, or using an anchor riding sail to keep the bow pointed into the wind.
