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.
McCoy Bay is the most northerly bay on the eastern side of Reevesby Island. This side of the island is less visited by yachts, but in westerly conditions this bay, and the two smaller bays further south, all provide excellent shelter.
In the north and north-westerly conditions which precede the passage of a front, the northerly part of this bay has good shelter and when the wind backs to the south-west after the passage of the front, a move to either the southern end of the bay or around the headland to Moreton Bay is easy.
The holding is good with patchy weed on sand, and shore access is easy.
