Top spot with limitations

Hi all, Jack and Jude here https://jackandjude.com
Esperance is a tiny town with a lot to offer at the far end of everything, next stop the Great Australian Bight, or maybe it's your first stop after many hostile miles. Of course it lacks a huge marina, because it's tiny and isolated, but it has a very helpful, welcoming sailing club who "might" be able to help with one of their berths. Or anchor inside the protected harbour BUT outside the harbour lines. See our guide at https://jackandjude.com/anchorages/wa/wa_sw/ That way no-one gets their nose out of joint. Last resort in an easterly blow, in the bay on a long scope, hanging on. The town has everything you'll normally need served up with friendliness by interesting folk. Love the lines of pines on the walk thru town, and the fact that it's the last stop before the great unknown.
