Note: approx. only. Do not use as an
anchoring point on your GPS.
S-E at eastern end of bay;
SW-SE in south-westerly part of bay.
The holding varies. Towards the eastern end of the bay there are large patches of relatively deep sand, but also quite a bit of barely covered rock. At the western end much of bottom is tapeweed, difficult to get a good hold in (except with a fisherman's anchor or similar).
The photo looks SE-wards over White Point in the foreground, with Boxing Bay and Marsden Point beyond. On the right, in the middle distance, part of the Bay of Shoals can be seen.
The eastern end of the bay provides better shelter from SE to E than Emu Bay.
If wind shifts to the W-NW, move to Marsden Point anchorage.
The nearest shelter from northerlies is in Kingscote Harbour, near the Beatrice Islets or in the Bay of Shoals.
