Note.    Indicative anchoring positions are for reference only and should not be used as waypoints.  The best position for anchoring depends on many factors including vessel draft, tide, and forecast wind.

Greenly Island is a very steep, rocky and high island located about 25 miles west of Avoid Bay, which makes it appear to be an attractive stop after an easy day sail when heading west. While it provides excellent shelter from both wind and sea, the anchorage is very deep and the bottom rises very steeply close to the island. It is regularly used by fishing boats and charter vessels, so is clearly a good anchorage. However it is disconcerting for itinerant yachts to anchor so close to a rocky shore.

Shore access is not possible.
