Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here on the forum. Anchoring is different wherever you go because the bottom is always different. Learning to anchor where you normally are located is good but don't depend on things to be the same worldwide.
I'm aware for this area I will learn to anchor through the 103 course. I will research anywhere else I go but I know the differences between each anchor style.
You found the right place, I'm fairly new here myself and I'm sure that the help and advice you will get from the friendly folks here will be invaluable to you. Welcome aboard and above all else, "Safe Sailing" to you...
