The Alderny method is really complicated to explain yet dead easy to understand once seen in action.
Down here in Dorset we have a wonderfull club (Poole Bay Small Boat Angling Club) We regularly arrange teach- ins where the more experienced members take out the less experienced for an hour of so of practice in anchoring methods and man overboard recovery. Now I am not telling you this to blow our own trumpet but to sugest that any members of other clubs where ever they are adopt the same strategy. It is a brilliant way to attract new membership and also gives you the nice feeling of putting something back into the sport.

In your case sea monkey (or can I just call you C for short) I would look around for a boat fishing club in your area as there is so much to be gained by joining a club. I seem to remember that there are several guys here that come from Kent and maybe one will take pity and offer to buddy boat you so you can practice with an instructor near by.

If you are going to try on your own try it in a shallow (5 or 6 meters) area on a calm day.

Where in Kent do you fish from Sea Monkey? As Afishionado says it is easier to watch someone do it for real, I go out from Rye or Newhaven and you are welcome to buddy up with my boat sometime and see how I do it.

Great advice from the guys above.
The only commetn I would say is with regards Afishionado's suggestion about shallow water.
I agree about shallow, but would say shallowish.
Try it in a depth that is a few metres deeper than the amount of chain you have on your anchoring kit.
In addition let out slightly more warp than you would normally and you will allow it to stream out behind and to the side of you when driving out the anchor. If the length of warp is too short it has a chance of sliping under the boat.

Take Terry up on his offer of a run out fro Rye. You'll learn stacks from him.

thanks for replys
will send cascars a pm
Your idea of seeing it done on video is worth thinking about. Maybe I will take a video camera out in the summer and make some short clips on the most common tasks such as this. If I do it, maybe Mike will be able to put them somewhere on the site.

Hi Cascars,

I would definately be interested in seeing the anchor yanka alderney ring method.
I'm sure it would help a lot of others out as well.

I will have a word with Jim Whippy (BFM Consultant Editor) and see if it would be something he could get involved in professionally. It could be a good giveaway with the mag.

I spoke to him this morning and he is quite interested. We will speak in more detail on my Newhaven Charter trip next month.
