Nice to hear you report back.. we've had a great summer in this part of the world.

Ending up with a strong beam-on wind or current is indeed the bane of stern tying. With experience in various places you'll get to know where that's likely or not likely to happen. Should such a situation occur, the safest approach in the event of the anchor letting go is to quickly free the sternline... your boat will swing away and in all likelihood the anchor will reset itself. (hopefully there's room to do this) Retrieve the shore line once your secure again.
