The 15lb anchor is nice as a lunch hook. Easy to set and retrieve. Other than that, as has been said, have a minimum of two heavyweight anchors (each for different bottom conditions - I have a Bruce and CQR) and for redundancy.

Even if mainly daysailing, you may need a heavyweight - imagine wind gets up, engine fails, being driven towards beach/rocks.....
