killarney_sailor is on a distinguished road
I suggest you try anchoring off the stern since it is free to try and easy. Anchor as normal and then walk the rode to the stern cleat. It also offers the advantage that it directs the breeze into the cabin on hot days. Not a good solution if the wind is really honking but good overall.
