The chain is almost more important than the anchor, the weight of the chain keeps the anchor from bouncing as the swell lifts the boat and dragging the anchor.

Camber isn't really an option in my opinion, huge wide beach with a massive tidal range, no slipways for miles and costal defence works pouring thousands of tons of rocks onto the ENTIRE length of the sands if your looking at this neck of the channel Rye or dover are the better choices.

Hi seasure
The south coast with its predominantly S.E winds can be choppy too. Northerly winds can result in a calmer sea. You could think about A 29 then A 27 or A3/M3 and try Chichester Harbour.

SE?? I'd say almost without fail down here (on the East Sussex section at least) it's a westerly or south westerly 90% of the time.
