Can I anchor anywhere I want?
If you want to spend the night at sea instead, to take a break from sailing to enjoy the scenery or if the weather conditions don’t allow for sailing you can drop your anchor.
Before anchoring, always make sure the weather and seabed conditions in the area are favorable. Not every place is suitable for anchorage such as conservation areas and shipping lanes.
Most places that are unsafe or forbidden to anchor are marked on local maps if not sure ask the personnel at the marina.
