I haven't any specific techniques. But I always think ahead and always have a "Plan B". If I might have trouble backing into a spot on my return, I hang a spring line on the piling. When I'm sailing to pass a point of land I think of what I'll do if I can't pass safely: tack, bear off, or motor. My anchor is ready to let go anytime I'm on soundings. My halyards are bent on and my sails uncovered when I motor in case the motor should stop.
