We purchased the 33kg Rocna (as you suggested) and have just returned from a two month long shake down cruise locally, prior to heading offshore in May. We had 60knts in the bay of islands prior to Easter & our anchor did not budge!

"Just bought a Rocna 15 for my Starlight 35 this season. Required a modification to the existing roller to make it fit which I have just installed. The Starlight 35 and Starlight 39 have identical alloy bow roller fittings, so the same solution should work for both." - Simon
The anchor is directly connected by a 12mm shackle to 65 metres of 10mm short link grade L chain which is in turn connected by splice to 40 metres of nylon rode. The vessel has an LOA of 12.98m and a mass of 9 metric tons.

I bought my 40 kilo Rocna back in 2012 and had it shipped to Fiji after I got tired of my CQR not setting on the bottom. I made sure to get a bigger size than my boat needed(45 foot but weighs 45,000 pounds) as I like to sleep at night. It's held us in 55 knot winds while we were anchored in... read more

Rubicon 3 heads off on sailing expeditions to some of the world’s more remote areas and having a top quality anchor is paramount for us. Anchored off somewhere like the coast of Greenland, we need to know that our anchor will penetrate and hold in almost any environment.
