We're spending a lot more time on anchor than we'd like, partly due to the weather and partly due to being in an area of strong currents
We're developing a love-hate relationship with our anchor, it’s a 15lb plough anchor with 10metres of chain and 150m of rope.
LOVE - our anchor holds and does so well, it’s easy to deploy and stops us losing valuable ground.
HATE - it has to be pulled back in manually, it holds so well that this is exhausting when anchored at greater depths, which recently we often are.
And, of course, after pulling in the anchor we then have to row!"
