Destination - On the Point




Members Tips - Anchoring

When anchoring, always put as much strain on your anchor as there will be windage on your boat. The strain/drag will set your anchor into the sand and/or weed and indicate if the anchor is likely to hold.
How much chain to let out?
Light Winds - At least 3 times the depth
Heavy Winds - At least 5 times the depth




It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our Retired Commodore (1993 - 1995) and long-time Member, Clive Rosser. We would like to pass on our sincerest condolences to Clive's wife Patricia as well as the rest of Clive's family and friends through this challenging time. 
May you rest in peace.
