Have you been dreaming of sailing off to the Caribbean? Has the cold weather gotten under your skin? Are you on the cusp of leaving all those depressing newscasts behind? Let SSCA University fuel your dreams with knowledge and inspiration, all in the comfort of your own home wherever it may be, through a new series of information-packed webinars.

Whether you are sailing your own vessel locally or chartering in the Caribbean or beyond, knowing how to safely and effectively anchor is one of the most essential and liberating skills you can have. Knowing about anchors, rodes, anchorages and anchoring techniques is a prerequisite for enjoying an evening in a magically beautiful setting as well as getting a good night's sleep while swinging from the hook.

Much has changed over the years and the new gear offers serious technical advances over the older standard options. The goal of this session is to either help you get more confident using the gear you have, or to help you select new gear and understand how to deploy it correctly. We'll be discussing available equipment and its performance under simulated and real conditions. In addition, we will cover:

• Tackle and Anchor Selection
• Techniques for Setting the Anchor
• Scope, Chafe, Snubbers, Kellets, Trip Lines and More
• Anchorage Selection: Charts & Guides, Picking Your Spot, Swing Radius
• Setting Two Anchors and Med Mooring
• Weighing Anchor
• Anchoring Etiquette
