Dragging anchor is usually about decision and technique fails - wrong place, wrong set, wrong anchor for the situation - unless conditions were beyond those forecast or reasonably expected. I'm sure some of the newer cats represent a lot of windage vs the average mono, esp when they add the tall enclosures and houses, and may require more diligence on the hook.

FWIW we have friends that were avid multi sailors/racers.. when it came to cruising they found that, doublehanded, they spent more time trying to slow down their F25C than otherwise. When it came to choosing a boat to island hop the Caribbean they chose a mono, though a rather untypical one (for island cruising), a Bene 36.7. Currently on their 10th winter of exhilarating sailing down there.

Good synopsis, ortho... like so many issues here, the answer seems to frequently be 'it depends'...
