There are a lot of coves were you can do a three point moor with all three anchors. Or have the two bower anchors out and use the two rodes tied to trees or rocks on the shore. This is pending on how long you are going to be in that cove.
The light anchor in the lazarette is probably the keging anchor for pulling yourself off the beach, if you lightly grounded out.
