Re: Anchoring/leaving under sail

To me it's simply a question of competence and conditions. If the conditions allow (i.e., there's actually wind available to sail) and the captain/crew know how to sail off of an anchorage safely, I don't see any issues.

However, a crowded anchorage and/or poor weather conditions (not enough wind, too much wind, wrong wind direction, etc.) don't mix well with a crew not familiar with the procedure for weighing anchor under sail.
