Re: Anchoring/leaving under sail

sailed into Annapolis one holiday weekend (poor planning, will avoid in the future)
right behind one of the much larger charter sailing schooners that had a deckload of passengers.
I remember thinking, "that skipper is good" the moorings were packed and there were boats and skiffs and paddle boards all over. the big schooner sailed right up to the warf!
now that's a sailor.

as it should be. everyone should know how to master a sailboat if they have one.

can you be more specific about which CC you found this in
I believe it is in the March issue.

I'm not to bothered with having the engine on, if I have wind in my sails I have steerage so can avoid other boats.

Re: Anchoring/leaving under sail

I routinely sail on and off my mooring, BUT the engine is always running. Mooring field is tight and it's too easy for something unexpected to happen. My previous boat was hit on its mooring by a fellow club member who was sailing to his mooring and there was a sudden wind shift. Good friend was hit last season in a similar manner. Each accident result in over a thousand dollars damage. Just good seamanship to have the engine running and ready.

A wind shift does not turn a boat. It is the person at the helm. As for the argument on seamanship, one could and should say the sails should be made ready in case the engine quits. I see a lot of boats with their mainsail cover on when motoring into an anchorage.

Though a strong gust might. I can see a round up happening though I think prudence would dictate taking measures prior so it would not occur.

Re: Anchoring/leaving under sail

In Northport for example there are 800 something boats on Moorings with perhaps more than 1/2 Sailboats

The boats are all very tight and the fairway is very narrow SO depending on wind direction you can do it without being that "person" and there are many days were you would be quite obnoxious IMHP to make that many people dodge you in a narrow place

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

If you see someone on the road weaving through traffic, nearly hitting other other cars and running people down, you get to complain. (Yes, about a car driving!) Similarly, if you see someone sailing badly through a crowded anchorage, you get to complain. (Yes, about a sailboat sailing!) On my last charter I saw a bunch of near misses with boats sailed (badly) in mooring fields on a crater recently.

Re: Anchoring/leaving under sail

In enjoy sailing on and off moorings and anchor. It keeps me sharper, is good practice, and frankly I like the looks from other boats in the anchorage.

The Woodwind boats keep their engines running all the time and often are motorsailing to give the customers a better experience.

I've raced one of them from R2 to AH1 a couple of times when the wind was good enough for them to sail only. They still kick my butt - the skippers and crew are pretty good. The boats are also very light for their size.

sail fast and eat well, dave
