    last autumn when i was anchoured by Portland Bill, the tide built and chaters moved off. When we went to leave, i haev not seen so much pressue on the anchor rope\rode, wow! to normally pop in to reverse to lift to rope and see the buoy. The amout of welly need to get the rope slightly up was serious, then proceeded with the usual wide arch off to port. The rope stayed so deep for such a long time, i had my crew holding on as if that had stuck fast we would have got the stadard pull round of the bow. which can be aggressive, and with 3.5\4knts of tide, doing 8knts suddenly across the tide would have easily caught someone not holding on out. Thankfully all was well and the anchor lifted nicely, but the tide was impressive!!! No wonder the charters had departed already. They do know thier stuff around there! I am not even sure longer \ more rope would have helped - i was at 90\100m holdins in about 35m. R
