Impromptu “Turn Right”
Cruise-Out to the South Bay

This weekend (15th and 16th)

The weather forecast for the entire MLK long weekend is looking great for an anchor out in the South Bay, light winds, clear skies, and a high of 63 degrees so we are planning to make the most of this great winter weather.

It’s perfect conditions for people to come out and anchor out for a few hours or join us overnight on either or both Saturday and Sunday nights. 

Hugo is planning on departing Westpoint at 1300 on Saturday which is 2.5 hours after the high tide at the Dumbarton Bridge. It’s 6.5 miles from Westpoint to the bridge (ETA 14:30, approximately mid-tide) and then another 1.5 – 2.0 miles to our planned anchoring area south of the railway bridge.


The Dumbarton Bridge clearance is 85ft and Hugo is a tad over 75ft tall so we don’t want to get there at the top of the tide. South of the Dumbarton bridge is the old railway bridge which is permanently open. It’s almost a straight line through the bridges to where we plan to anchor.

Hugo draws 5ft and we plan to spend quite some time scoping out the suitable anchoring areas and depths for everyone and then settle in well before the low tide at 6:00 pm.


With next to no wind, plenty of room, and soft mud to anchor in this is a great location and time to practice and build everyone’s confidence up.

Hugo will host a pot luck dinner on Saturday evening once we are all settled in and we have a tender capable of shuttling people between boats.

We will monitor Channel 16 and 69 during the day, and our phone numbers are:
Russ: 615 417 1168
Tina: 615 554 4378
Our plan is to return to Westpoint on Monday around lunchtime.
We would love to have others come out and join us for a night or two or even just for the day to build up confidence in anchoring out and make the most of this quiet time of year in such a beautiful location.
Russ and Tina
