a lonely place....
He trusts that anchor tackle....

YouTube - windy anchorage

....but it will be lonely, and daunting, when the light fails.

I have never had to cope with 70 kt when at anchor, or even near so.

The anchor is the Supreme...

Manson Supreme Anchor - TheMainSail Product news

...and he has confidence in it.

Here he is again, this time with a drogue out....

Please don't confuse the Mainsail product news with our esteemed colleague Maine Sail. AFAIK, the two are not related or connected in any way.

It looks a decent anchor, if it can hold in that it is doing well.

When in Maine, put a main sail up first, I suppose.

That second video's "trick ending" gave me a bad moment...until I thought about it...

Good stuff.

Apparently the anchor is also known as a Rocna, or something like that.
It's all jolly confusing.

The manson and the rocna are similar but different manufacturers
