Re: my boat dances on a ball

My boat sails starts to sail at anchor when the wind is over 10 kts or so. A few remedies I've used:

- riding sail, hanked to the bakstay, hoisted with the spinnaker halyard.
- bridle, rigged from the rode to the mid or stern cleat.
- 15lb Kellet on the rode
- stern anchor, not set, but deployed to just drag on the bottom.
