It depends. Some places have good shelter and holding and if youíre sure the anchor is well set (set it well, have been in place a few days) you can risk leaving it for a few days. Thatís a personal choice.

Some spots have longer term ďresidentsĒ in the anchorage who if you get to know may be willing to look after your boat.

Other places have well maintained moorings at a reasonable cost.

Iíve done all of the above. Itís a matter circumstance and using good judgement. And of course planning ahead so youíve got an acceptable solution worked out for when you need to leave.
