Indicative Anchoring Position

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.
The wide expanse of beach on the north-eastern side of Wedge Island is an attractive backdrop to a useful anchorage. The bottom is sandy and the holding is good. However, it is very prone to rolling because there is often a south-easterly swell running parallel to the beach.
In strong south-westerly conditions, the shelter is excellent and the anchorage very comfortable.
Beach access can be difficult due to the shore break, and this should be attempted with caution.
