Gallows Bay it is, at Christiansted. The first photo is looking SSW from the docks at St. Croix Marine. The second photo is looking west toward Protestant Cay. The third photo is of Christiansvaern fort.

Congrats to Geoff54: your turn.

If you have been here this should be instantly recognizable - if not you might need a few clues.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

First thought was Avalon Harbour Catalina Island but that ain't it.... similar setup though.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

For those who've been to "The Bight" in the BVI it almost looks like that, except there's too much order in the ranked moorings the infamous Willie T's is missing.

My guess is that the water pictured in the picture will, at some point in time, pass Gibraltar. The mooring arrangements look typically French.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not nice, I mean, nice place but crowded anchorage. The only place I know with so crowded anchorages is Croatia but I don't know that one.

It is Croatia?

I guess you have guess it right. I should have noticed a big difference regarding Europe: The number of motor boats is huge if compared with what you get here on anchorage.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry I haven’t been around – damn real life got in the way.

It is Isthmus Cove, one of Two Harbors on Santa Catalina Island; obviously on a busy summer weekend. They use a double mooring system connected by a line (called a "spreader line " in the diagram but usually referred to as a "sand line") so the boats can be really packed in when it’s busy. Catalina is the only place I have encountered this system.

All yours kwaltersmi.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Geoff .... why are they all there ? Are these boats permanently moored or visiting ? What is so hot about Catalina Island ?
