Swinging while at anchor

Some boats, especially those with fin keels and/or high performance boats, tend to swing more at anchor. If you explain your problem to a sailmaker he can fashion a piece of canvas that you can use as a riding sail at anchor. The one I saw that seemed to work quite well was set up in a V shape such the the open part of the V faced forward toward the bow.
