Doing some research as I have volunteered to take on part of the race management role within the club.
Our racing is in a large brick clay quarry with depths of up to 100 feet,  and more importantly in places an extremely uneven bottom.

Canvassing for ideas of the underwater mechanisms other clubs use to anchor moveable marks,  and take up slack, or allow for adjustment in rope length.

Well at our club at broadstairs with have to deal with up to three knots of tides plus anything up to three meter waves sometimes we use anchors and fold up grapples and use rope which is weighted with lead line fed through it so the rope does not float when the tide is slack we normally use about four times the depth of rope and we use smaller anchors close in and bigger ones further out

Retired now after 35 seasons in a row and time for a rest
