If  the  anchorage  appears  safe,  the  navigator  begins  the  anchorage  plot  by selecting  the  approach  track.  During  this  process,  due  regard  must always  be  given  to  the  direction  of  the  predicted  wind  and  current expected  in  the  vicinity  of  the  anchorage.  Insofar  as  possible,  the approach  should  always  be  made  directly  into  whichever  of  these  two forces  is  predicted  to  be  strongest  at  the  approximate  time  at  which  the anchorage  is  to  be  made.
