Running Off

I was wondering about your thought process of feeling that running off is the best solution. How would you treat a lee shore when running towards one? Just curious. I too have no experience with either device, but if I could anchor somehow, until the bad weather would pass, makes the most sense to me. Since I can't anchor in the ocean, a Para-anchor seems to be the answer. Running, with a storm, I would think would leave you in it longer than anchoring,and let it pass over you quicker
