Anchoring a sailboat

"Bareboating" is the term used to describe the act of chartering a sailboat that one lives upon, navigates and operates for a vacation. Common "bareboating" locations are the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and other similar warm weather vacation spots.
To charter a sailboat, one must usually be able to demonstrate boat handling skills especially in operating the boat under power, docking, and anchoring. Typical sizes for bareboats come in the range of 30 ft to usually about 60 ft at the upper end. Most charter operators require a sailing resume listing sailing experience, boats that one has sailed and operated, and navigation and racing experience. If the charter operator is not satisfied that one has the appropriate experience, they will often require that the chartering party hire a captain from the charter company to sail with them for a few days. In most traditional charter destinations such as Greece or Croatia the chartering company would ask for a license of skipper in order to charter bareboat yachts.

The complete book of anchoring and mooring
The complete book of anchoring and mooring
Published by Cornell Maritime Press/Tidewater Publishers 1994
341 pages

The Complete Book addresses anchoring systems, techniques, and permanent moorings for boats from 12 to 80 feet in length. It covers monohulls, multihulls, light displacement sailboats, cruisers, sportfishers, passagemakers, and workboats. In short, it is for all recreational and working boats in this size range. The book deals not only with anchor behavior, but also with the rode assembly, riding stoppers, and the human factors. What formerly was thought of as strength through size (heavy anchors and large rodes) has been refined to decrease weight, lighten loads on the boat, and reduce difficulty in handling. Utilizing a systems approach with respect to equipment and techniques and analytical methods for loads, Earl R. Hinz has made a number of contributions to the state of the art....

The 103 year old, gaff-rigged racing sloop Alera, passing by the Newport Bridge. "...In 1904, New York Yacht Club officers decided to contract world-famous yacht-designer and builder Nathaniel G. Herreshoff, of Bristol Rhode Island, to design and build 18 one design sailboats for club members to race. During the winter and spring of 1905, the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company built 18 of the 43'6" (30' at waterline hence the name) single mast, gaff rig New York 30 sloops at an astonishing rate of one a week. The New York 30s, in 1905, cost $4,000 apiece and came completely outfitted, with an inventory that included racing sails, two anchors, lines, mattresses, pillows, bunk linens, stove, cooking utensils and china. Alera, completed in early January 1905, bears number one on its Nat Wilson (East Boothbay) Sailmakers sail, signifying the first New York 30 built by Herreshoff. ..." Boothbay Register
