Sibsey Islet

Shelter from      E – SE

Indicative Anchoring Position

34° 38.5’S   136° 10.8’E

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.

Sibsey Islet is the western most island in the group, and therefore the first island encountered when sailing to the group from Port Lincoln. The anchorage is in a small cove on the north-western side, and the holding is good in sand with patchy weed.

Another anchorage exists in a small cove on the eastern side, giving shelter from the west and south-west. The bottom here is mostly weed on sand.

The shore is rocky, making landing difficult in either anchorage.
