A sea anchor, in general, is any material or construction made fast at a ship's bow and thrown into the water creating drag which keeps the bow pointing (more or less) into the sea, thereby reducing the amount of leeway a ship makes and allowing the ship to ride over sea swells with greater safety during storms.
Typically, it is made of a number of spars with some sail material.
