I love this anchor. Have a 15 kg on a 32 GB and it is by far the best anchor I have had compared to CQR and Bruce type. Sets quickly and holds well at 3:1, a necessity in crowded anchorages. Go to 5:1 in heavy blow. Has never pulled out and self launches when anchoring.
Aventura is in Lancaster Sound, in Arctic Canada, at the start of the Northwest Passage. Last Thursday and Friday we had a 27 hour storm, with gusts of up to 58 knots.

Our boat is a 28' power cat designed by Gary Barnett in New Zealand. I tested the anchor in both soft conditions and in rock conditions in Lake Washington and the Puget Sound.
The boat has a dual roller system and the fit is good. Dual rollers hold the anchor in a particular attitude vs one roller around which the anchor will rotate depending on the angle of pull of the chain. In this case both the Rocna and the two Vulcans fit fine.
While sailing throughout the Caribbean area, UK, Spain and Portugal, we have anchored in various terrains and never experienced any problems. As Rocna states, it is “Rock Solid”; in sand, soft substrate, coral sand, in grass and kelp. Even in a rocky bottom with 40cm sand substrate.... read more
We arrive at Galaxhidi, on the Gulf of Corinth, after an excellent sail that included an hour under spinnaker. Into the little port and go stern-to, only to find the new wall so high that our passerelle forms an angle of nearly 45 degrees, far too steep to walk up or down.
Bellaroo's Rocna anchor is probably one of the best additions to her inventory. Although rather pricey, the security when she's dug-in is worth every penny...
