Why anchors drag is a subject you might be confused by because boats dragging anchor happens so often in sailing channels’ videos, without explanation or warning. Well, the truth is: it’s not! However, problems can arise when you don’t understand the technical side. Here’s a crash course in the concepts you should know so you’ll understand why you’re dragging achor! As Tami and I fill our brains with everything we need to safely and confidently sail offshore, I thought I’d start this series of videos which address some of the more confusing or often not-well-explained technical things you see on sailing channels. If you’re confused about how something works or why your favorite sailing superstars do things in a particular way, let me know! Maybe your question will be the topic of the next animation.
