The harbour/marina is a secure place to take a break from sailing. At the harbour you can find cleaning, mending, waste disposal and tank filling services. If you decide for a bareboat charter, it might be wiser to berth in a marina, especially if you are not well acquainted with the sailing region you chose to explore. Berthing in marinas is also safer because they are protected from winds and harsh weather conditions. Anchorage is a manoeuvre where you drop anchor if you need to hide from bad weather conditions or enjoy the scenery. If you optioned for a skippered charter, the captain will surely know a number of secluded bays where you can anchor. For anchoring in bays you should make sure that your supplies of food, water and electricity are sufficient.
