With regard our recent sail from France to Croatia we arrived in Dubrovnik in the dark after being greeted 20 miles out by a very nasty storm. After checking in with the Harbourmaster and immigration police we were told we couldn’t stay on the jetty - and were asked to leave. We were aware of an island close by that had a bay which would afford some protection from the SE winds (BURA wind - up to 60 knots).

After arriving in the bay in hail and sleet and anchoring successfully my wife checked the details of the bay and discovered the bottom had a poor hold.

I'm writing because my husband and I are new to the cruising lifestyle, having left New York City on our Catalina 34 back in October. On our way down, we started losing faith in our Danforth-style anchor and wanted to get a much better anchor to use in the Bahamas and beyond.

We did a lot of research on modern anchors, which I wrote about here.

Looking to upgrade his anchoring equipment, Len S. found Rocna Anchors after talking to friends who were existing owners. One particular aquaintance was so enthusiastic about his new anchor, Len decided to invest in a Rocna 30.

Tired of "sleepless nights on the pick doing the 'slow crawl' with other anchors", Graham decided his yacht's existing ground tackle set-up of a 30 lb Manson plough, Danforth, and folding grapnel was inadequate, and went looking for a better solution.

American cruising guru Steve Dashew was interested in new generation anchors, and bought a Rocna for his new 83' ocean-going motoryacht Wind Horse. The anchor is a custom built 115 kg (254 lb) model, and is all but identical to our 110 design (a few changes were made to accomodate the bow on Wind Horse, at Steve's request).
