    Nice and peaceful but a little exposed in a blow. The hard clay type mud is good holding apart from the fact your anchor will reset with each tide and there is a chance the hard mud will prevent it from re-settling if it sticks. If you plan to stay for long or across the tides then I recommend using a Bahamian moor arrangement. We dragged when a strong front came over and blew us against the tide over the anchor. It took 100m to reset. A spade is know to be good for resetting and I’m not sure an anchor with a roll bar would have done.

    Was lovely in light winds, although the tidal current absolutely rattles through. However, in strong easterly winds with the tide behind them it provides little protection and we dragged anchor several times.
