Re: Big Bend Local Knowledge?

My knowledge ends really in Pensacola, but be very careful of the Dixey Bar just outside the mouth of Mobile Bay. It currently stretches a set of channel markers past the lighthouse before ou can make the turn to the east.

Fairhope Yacht Club on the east side of the bay is incredible, and the club has very reasonable transient slip rates.

Pensacola Yacht Club is currently stacked full of boats for probably the next two weeks as they are hosting two large regattas last week, and this weekend. And it will likely take a few weeks to clear out.

Any idea what your time line looks like?
