I'm not familiar with that light. But I do know strobes are only permitted in certain very limited circumstances (e.g., navigational beacons, fishing buoys, emergency rescue beacons), and using them otherwise is not a legal light configuration.
I'm not exactly sure what your intended application is here, but it wouldn't be a good idea to set a strobe flashing at the top of your mast when you leave the boat to go ashore. The flashing strobe would normally be interpreted as a distress signal, or might even be confused with a local aid to navigation.
If you are just trying to come up with an easier way to locate your boat in an anchorage at night, I've read of some very clever ways to do this. The one I probably like best is the adaptation of automotive style infrared fobs for the boat. They are used to remotely activate deck/spreader and/or cockpit lights from a fairly long-distance away, when returning to the boat. Just a suggestion.
