Re: Channel Islands sailing
I plan on sailing to Santa Cruz island and anchoring at smugglers cove. That looks the most protected and seems to have a reliable sandy bottom. I don't have as much experience as a lot of you, I'm sure.
I doubt it. When I went there I was 23 and had only taken a 3 day sailing course and been sailing less than a year. We left Channel Island Marina and sailed to Smugglers in heavy wind. It was very peaceful and easy in the lee of the island and had no trouble anchoring there, good holding.
I have also been in Coches Prietos and while not the skipper then I remember it being fairly deep and sheltered.
