Anchoring in Nantucket

I Can empathize with your boat wanting to sail on the anchor. I have an O''Day 30 with center board, hense long keel. It used to want to sail all over the place in current until I realized that with the helm locked amidships it still sails a bit but does''nt wrap the anchor rode around the leel any longer. what I have to mainly watch out for is that I''m sitting into the current but other boats near me are sitting into the wind, especially power boats, which usually don''t have enough scope out to hold and are frequently dragging. Might be the trinket anchors that a lot of them seem to use!!!!!
