Re: Raise the main sail while still at anchor

I'll sometimes sail both off and ON to a mooring or anchor. It's something everyone should do a couple of times as practice before they have to do it for real. You never know when your engine is...

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a surveyor in the oriental/more head/Beaufort area?

Thanks!
