Christopher Blossom - Windward
Although this is not a well-known location, it is a picturesque little harbor, and it captures a feeling that many sailors will recognize - a feeling of satisfaction in making a successful passage through open waters to a safe and serene harbor. Windward can call up many moods in both the casual sea lover and the veteran seafarer. Besides picturing the calm inlet, blue skies, and comfortable breeze, it is a portrait of a boat starting a maneuver all sailors know well. This Valiant 40 is moving around the other boats to drop anchor. It's late afternoon and you're anchoring under sail... what you want to do is round up into the wind, keep the boat into the wind, let it slow down, and drop the anchor when it stops. Then you let the boat drop back, snub the anchor line, and set the anchor. There may be different procedures depending on what kind of rig you've got and what conditions are, but that's the general procedure for anchoring under sail.
