    Good Morning, I have a Westsail 43 Cutter in New Zealand which at Anchor covers more miles than on an ocean passage, the question I have does any Westsail 43 Owner have a successfull solution to stop her from going port to starboard and on occasions unhooks my anchor generally at around 3am in the morning. In the past it has not been a concern, however I now have a new partner and she cannot sleep due to the boat sailing at anchor.
    Kind Regards

    You might try setting a small riding sail on the backstay.  The luff goes on the backstay, and the clew comes forward and the line should go through the turning block on the centerline of the aft deck, or on the aft side of the cockpit coaming then to a cleat.
