Excellent Guide to Tasmania
Reviewed Sep 2016
The Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania have released the fifth edition of their Tasmanian Anchorage Guide with coloured maps of all their recommended anchorages around Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Anchorage Guide provides significant coverage of the anchorages in Tasmania in the following sections: Hobart to the Freycinet Peninsula up to Coles bay; The East and North East Coasts; The Furneaux & Kent Groups; The North Coast including the Tamar River and King Island; The West Coast including Macquarie Harbour and Port Davey; The D'Entrecasteux Channel including the Huon River, Recherche Bay and Bruny Island. A detailed description of each anchorage is provided highlighting: how to approach, relevant lights and leads, where to anchor, what wind and sea conditions it is suitable for, whether it is affected by swell and what facilities might exist. Some of the anchorages are covered with a high level of detail, especially the secluded but extensive west coast anchorages of Macquarie Harbour and Port Davey, including information on bushwalks and points of interest.
An introductory section covers the history of the Guide, relevant marine charts and publications, biosecurity issues, passages distances and coastal radio stations.
The information is provided as a guide only and is intended for use in conjunction with the Australian Pilot, Australian charts and other cruising publications.
