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.

i spent 3 nights on the Esperance public jetty in April 2017. while this was the closest place to tie up there were no services available, no power or fresh water which was a hasstle and concern especially to recharge our battery bank.. the Esperance Bay yacht club made available their amenities and were most hospitable. Restaurants and supermarket within walking distance..
We were well protected from the SW blow when were there.
No shore power or fresh water. we didnt go to the Marina as

Just departed March 2018. It could benefit the town if the 'powers that be', were to install a few rated moorings. The weed is very dense and even beat my trusty ' Jack modified Fisherman's' ! As it happened ,three yachts were able to crowd the town jetty ,for two days, whilst a blow went thro'. Port Control were most accommodating. There is a small marina but not suited to multis.
Fine town and delightful people
Difficult to anchor in strong or Easterly weather
