...Unless it is calm, you will want to drop your main and roll your jib, otherwise the boat will sail away, dragging the anchor.
That's kind of what I figured. I'd never contemplated anchoring either...we always just beach it. But for Blue Angels shows - and possibly some other circumstances that I just haven't thought of yet - it would be perfect to be out in the open water for better viewing. We'd be in less than 20 ft. of water, so depth wouldn't be a problem.
I've never tried lowering/raising the main on the water. Is this a fairly common thing that cat sailors do, or would this be considered unnatural or weird?
Like I said, we're totally new to the whole sailing scene. We're loving every minute of it, but I'd prefer to not look like a clueless dork if I don't have to!
