with a 2 meter draught? How safe is it from s, s/w winds? What is the holding like? How likely is it that you would get chased out of there by a wind
I know that its very isolated and have talked to one cat owner who has been there, but rumour has it that it is used more often than the pilot would have it by people in the know.
, I know it as Bitangabee, and have stopped over on a few occaisions.
There is around 5 meters of water
in the channel with 3m in the anchorage.
A sand and weed bottom with good holding with an admiralty anchor. Very pretty, with the ruins of the old store for the geen cape light house at the waters edge. Not sure I'd want to enter with a big easterly swell but the inlet provides protection for everything but easterly.
We normally stop over to rest here after the wilsons prom or lakes entrance run or while waiting for a front to pass before heading west..
A low submerged rocky spit from both banks near the entrance provides added protection ,so stay in the middle of the inlet when approaching. The water
is very clear most of the time, except after heavy rains.
