We anchor a 5 tonne yacht with a 10kg Delta in Braye harbour and sleep soundly on board. Indeed we find anchoring more comfortable because the mooring buoys tend to get a back wash off the harbour wall that sets up a an uncomfortable motion.
We choose the area in the red circle normally because the big yachts can't get that close into the beach and its quite sheltered. There is a steep ridge that rising from 11m to 7m so the anchor goes onto the 7m bank.
Don't forget the dinghy to get ashore unless your doing a Bond 007 with the drysuit and tux underneath
