The idea is to anchor its 2 anchors so that the mooring lines form a V in front of the boat. The anchors are anchored between 60 and 120° from each other.
This solution is used to limit the turning radius. But be careful, it is not recommended to offer a better holding in bad weather. Indeed, the anchors work successively one after the other and not at the same time.
Embossing consists of adding a mooring from the rear (it can be a hawser carried ashore). Thus maintained in front behind, the boat remains in its axis. This can be useful in areas where you cannot avoid (a river for example).
But this is still a good-weather anchorage, because if the wind comes from abeam, the anchors don't work properly.
This is the ideal anchorage in bad weather. It consists of anchoring a first anchor (the light anchor) and then hitting the end of the chain at the main anchor. In this way, both anchors work on the axis and correctly.
To facilitate the ascent of the anchor, it is recommended that the distance between the 2 anchors is greater than the depth. This allows the first anchor to be pulled up while the other is still at the bottom.

This technique consists of anchoring one anchor after the other. The first anchor is dropped and then let go and after a few meters (between 10 and 20 m), the second anchor is dropped. This type of anchorage allows you to work on 2 anchors at the same time. But it is less efficient than the empennelage and above all there is a big risk of seeing the anchors get tangled..
Dating back to the old navy (this manoeuvre is described in Jean Merrien's 1902 Dictionary of the Sea), this practice is not often used.
