Continued Anchor Advice…

Why Choose A Sarca Anchor For Sail And Power Cruising Yachts
The design of the anchor is such that it has no moving parts and does not waste energy on extra lead or cast iron weights. This means that weight is more effectively used in structural strength and extra blade area for greater holding power.
Use a Sarca Anchor and don’t Drift at Night!
The Sarca anchor sets within a meter range which is unheard of with most anchors. Rex says that with hundreds of tried and tested sets right around Australia over a 7 year period, the Sarca anchor never dragged once! Could you say that about any anchor you have had on your yacht?
Plan your emergency anchorages before leaving base. That is all part of planning your cruise. When using a Sarca anchor you will be able to take advantage of the super-high holding power and be able to use less scope.
AlwaysAlways be prepared for every eventuality! Carry a second anchor on board in case you lose your main anchor for any reason.
Avoid hull damage and accidental anchoring by securing your anchor before heading to sea. Relying on your winch alone is not enough!
Enjoy Better Boating With A Sarca
There should be no compromise when selecting your boats anchor. Design, maximum durability, holding power and reliability are all paramount traits in the best anchors, and we find these needs surpassed in Sarca Anchors.
