Re: Anchoring single handed whilst hove to?

Jeff H and Capta - you're suggestions are very helpful. I don't know if I am fast enough to do all these tasks, go back and forth etc... My boat is a bit bigger than Arcb's but not so big that it could ever have enough momentum to travel 30-50 feet up wind once I've dropped the sails. I like doing things slowly and deliberately. The idea of heaving to in order to stop everything, then carefully going to the bow and gradually letting out the anchor and rode while the boat goes to leeward at one knot appeals to me. You guys may have better methods, I'm not arguing that.
