Good advise to observe what everyone else is doing in these anchorages. Shorter scope is better and will generally work well since your boat is being held in tension between the anchor and a hard point on the shore. Be wary though if the wind comes up and is on your beam. Then, the shore tie is a pivot that won't give way, but your anchor potentially will, putting you on the beach.
