Southern Bay

Cruise Captain | Greg Quince – August Moon

Saturday 4th May

Leave RQYS Manly or your home port and head to Canaipa.

Sundowners at RQYS. BYO with hopefully a campfire. Dinner at your leisure.


Depending on your draft, the safe track south is to go around the northern end of Russell Island and down the main channel on the western side of Russell Island past Jacobs Well. This 18nm trip will take approximately 2-2.5 hrs. The shorter track is down the eastern side of Russell Island but has the difficulty of shallow shoals near Koureyabba/ Oak Island.
