One anchor, a cable the boat’s length of chain and 40m of warp.
- Mandatory Cats 4 & 5
Minimum required if racing Cat 4 or 5 only:
One anchor and chain including connection, with a combined anchor and chain weight of 20 kg as a minimum. The chain length shall be at least 9 meters & link diameter at least 8mm. Warp/cable length minimum 40m
If racing Cat 1-3 or cruising then as a minimum comply with class rules and relevant YNZ rules
Anchor type is up to you but most boats carry Plows/CQR or Rocna type anchors for cruising and for racing cat 4/5 some will carry an 1 x aluminium Danforth and chain to achieve the 20kg min weight and minimum warp
Apart from complying with rules it is up to you and depends on how well you want to sleep when parked.
Chains Ropes and Anchors might be in a good spot to comment class and YNZ rules plus anchor type...
