'We have had most types of anchors over the years on our different boats and we've used them too. Hand on heart, this is the best one so far.' TM Sailing Today, October 2010.

Rocna anchors are raising the bar of boat-owners' expectations of anchor performance. Recent independent tests by publications such as Cruising World, Practical Sailor, and SAIL show that new-generation type anchors consistently outperform more traditional designs. Picks, claws, and ploughs are a thing of the past, and we are proud to present the most refined and effective - yet affordable - new-generation design: Rocna. Through careful design, the Rocna does not waste energy with extra lead or cast iron weights, meaning weight is more efficiently used in structural strength and extra blade area (holding power). On a comparable weight for weight basis, this means greater security for cruisers, or a lighter anchor for weight sensitive craft. On any vessel, one of a skipper's first priorities is his or her anchoring gear.

A Rocna means more enjoyable and safer boating, a less anxious crew, and a good night's sleep. Your Rocna is the bottom line. Rocna range & sizing There's a Rocna anchor to suit just about any vessel. But choosing the one that's right for you is not as easy as it seems.

Oyster 47 "Suilven" being held completely steady in a gust peaking at 58 knots at 74deg 30min N in Dundas Harbour, Devon Island, Arctic Canada, thanks to our new 33 kg Rocna anchor. See Photographs below.

I've also attached a photograph of our track which shows us surviving yet another storm, this time near Illulisat in Greenland where we saw gusts of over 45 knots. It shows where we dropped the anchor and dropped back, and our track during the night in the high winds, and then our track the next morning when the wind had dropped.
