Stumbled onto this old thread so thought I would share some info if anyone has an interest in visiting Wellington Harbour on Lake Ontario
, or venturing into West Lake behind the dunes of the Sandbanks. The channel to Wellington Harbour has been dredged every year for the last few years. I was last there with my Catalina
309 (draft 4'4") July 2013 and joined later by a C320. Depth
in the channel then was 6'. For up to date depths contact The Reel Thing Fishing
Pro Shop, they manage the harbour and docks. They can also provide guidance as to West Lake depths which are generally 4' to 10' and deeper in some spots. A few hours after we tied up at the Wellington Municipal pier in the harbour , two sloops (about 28' or so) entered the harbour and continued, rather slowly, into West Lake. Snapped a photo
of them anchored off the dunes on a dinghy
trip into West Lake the next day. Not sure what draft those sloops have, but assume 4' or slightly less.
