One of the reasons we are on a mooring rather than in a dock is that I love sailing on and off the mooring. Could do it blinfolded in our old boat but I've not got the sailing on bit down pat with Raven. She carries her way a lot differently to the old girl. The other thing I love doing (in a very empty bay) is anchor under sail. Only tried sailing off an anchor once and it was so damn traumatic that I've never done it again.
