Excellent. I'll test that next time I get down there, probably late June. I'd be excited to carry 6' across the bar.

sail fast and eat well, dave

I did it 4 times this weekend and my depth gauge read > 6' the entire time. Thanks again!

Re: Crossing the sandbar at Harrington Harbor North, Deale

All the time, for 20 years. I draw 3.5 feet.

As for those who state that it is 6-feet, perhaps some places and some times, but I promise you there are 4-foot spots at extreme low tide. It just depends on exactly where you cross and how many times you cross. I've never hit, but I've seen some low numbers many times and I know my sounder to be acurate within inches (we often anchor and swim in shallow areas). Pay attention. The chart is not wrong.

Most of the time, most places, about 6 feet.

(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")

Does anyone know if you can see fireworks shows from the water near Herring Bay for the 4th? I've never done 4th on the water?

I've never watched the fireworks from there, but I do know Herrington Harbor South will have their firework show on July3rd. I believe they will shoot them off the sea wall.

Re: Crossing the sandbar at Harrington Harbor North, Deale

I went across the bar a couple times in May just to try. You just have to be careful where you pick to cross and watch the depth gauge.

HHS had some great fireworks last night. We caught the bus from HHN and made it just in time for the show.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

On my charts, if you follow a course connecting the Rock Hold Creek 1 to the Herrington Bay 1, you will be fine. It crosses just south of the 5 and 4 ft marks on the marine chart.

I'll have to try this. What I do is head due east from the green 3 daymark off of Fairhaven. There is an informational bouy near the start of Long Bar. Keep heading east (magnetic). I draw 4.5' and only do this at or near high tide. Depths are nearly 8 feet the entire way.
