Hello Bruce,
Saw you coming in and going out of Newtown creek but you were not looking as I was waving. We were up on the bank having a BBQ. A very good day for a BBQ

Hi Andre, just looking at picture 2, have always fancied anchoring and BBQ on the beach there but never done it...

Looks like you put the bows into the beach and jumped off with the anchor and set it into the beach? that way you can let it back out as the tide changes? is that about right?

guess this way you can do it just about keeping your toes dry?

Would have thought the deployment of an anchor off the stern would be the way to go?

a very good place to go for a BBQ and yes as Hightower said you have to have a stern anchor. I used a heavy plough one. We arrived at low tide at it was a very nice day indeed. one of the best places and now the secret is out to all.
