Re: Cruising Broken Bay / September School Holidays
Yes there are heaps of great spots, I grew up sailing in Pittwater as we kept our first 2 boats in Careel Bay from when I was 13 or so. As long as I can tie up on a mooring I'm happy (hate anchoring overnight unless 100% necessary).
We have an X-Yachts XP-38, Solveig II, luckily my old man insists on spending the inheritance on quality yachts ..... not that I have any reason to complain
... and so you should be .... happy that is. I hope the weather is good for you.
Now I don't know how well you know the area so excuse me if I am stating the bleeding obvious but there are a couple of really good spots in Smiths Creek and Jerusalem Bay. First bay to starboard as you enter Smiths has three or four maritime moorings and a sand flat that dries at low tide. At high tide you can take the dinghy up stream to a couple of small waterfalls. Worth spending an evening there. If you see a wee Triton 24 "Skoota" say g'day and tell them Andrew and Wendy send their best. The tip of JB is also good for the kids.
What's your boat btw ?
