Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Class rules say: 

14.1 (e) 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. Anchors, chain and rode shall comply with current YNZ safety regulations.

 

YNZ Safety Regs pg 71 says:

ANCHORS

17.29 Anchors and ground tackle to be carried shall include: Two anchors with: 

(i) A cable the boat’s length on deck of chain (min) plus 60m (195ft) of rope or chain, the bitter end of this cable to be secured to the hull. 

(ii) A second anchor cable of 6m (19ft 6in) minimum of chain plus 40m (130ft) of rope or chain. 

Mandatory Cats 1-3 recommended Cat 4

 

Floating anchor warp not acceptable. At least one anchor must be complete with tackle and ready for immediate use at all times.

Mandatory Cats all categories

 

One anchor, a cable the boat’s length of chain and 40m of warp.

Mandatory Cats 4 & 5

 

Implies..

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...
