After a day on the water you are more than likely a little sunburnt and ready for a nice meal and some downtime.

Waking up to the loud CRRRRUNK sound of your vessel scraping across another nearby boat will ruin your entire sailing experience. Setting an anchor or attaching your sailboat to a mooring can be frustrating if you don’t understand the basic principles and tricks. This study quiz will help you recognize where your gaps in anchoring knowledge lie.
