I have been by Mitlenatch way too many times to count. I do need to go sailing without having to conduct a course and do what I want to do.

John - I would make Savary my last choice. I have anchored there but with great trepidation. There is one spot near Indian Point that is OK, but there are many smaller boats on mooring balls taking up much of the space. There is one shallow (70') spot off the government dock. It is not really on the chart, I found it with a depth sounder. I used 200 feet of chain and 100 of nylon. I was working with a client who has a summer home there. We brought his boat up from Sidney to teach the kids to sail.

Why not go into Lund and enjoy Nancy's in the morning after a night in the pub, or the Laughing Oyster?
