"the leeward edge of the channel" means nothing.

Either you were IN the channel or OUT of the channel. If you anchored IN the channel, that's illegal in any mapped and charted channel. If you were OUT of the channel but so close to it that you could expect shipping to run right past you, that's plain suicidal but not illegal.

Sounds like if all you lost was an anchor, you were lucky.
