Anchor Setup

Anchor Setup

This method comes with an element of risk and should be done with caution. You’ve launched from the shore and paddled out to your desired location/mark, time to drop the anchor. Providing your anchor is set up correctly i.e.

Anchor > Chain > Anchor Warp > Divers Reel

You should lower the anchor to the seabed, quickly releasing anchor warp with the general rule of thumb of 3 times the depth, whilst doing this you should move your anchor trolley to the correct position at the rear of your kayak and then secure the reel within easy reach using a zig zag cleat.

 

It is always good practice to sit for a moment to ensure the anchor system has set correctly and to make sure you are not drifting. Do this process in reverse to retrieve the anchor. You can use a “quick release” method, it’s all down to personal preference.
