We had a pretty good thunderstorm cell blow through here yesterday (I was in the office looking out thinking of sailing...
) and it got me thinking about a question I have not figured out yet. The winds were primarily from one direction but towards the end did swing around to come from the opposite direction for a time. I understand the reason for the wind
shift I think (low moved overhead) but an not sure how to anchor
Using 2x anchors off the bow of the boat
, in a V configuration, seems the easiest/logical solution for winds from one direction. How do you handle winds which shift to come from a different direction? With the V configuration I can't figure out if the boat
out tangle the anchors up making a mess, if one would stay slack and the other anchor
would drag/pivot/set itself in a new direction?
In general, how to you folks handle mid lat thunderstorms?
