Jervis Bay January 2021

Post by juan » Jan 14th, '21, 10:29

Windy and wet week, I spent 5 days relaxing in Jervis.
Launched in Huskisson, but given the constant southerly all week I spent most of the time near Hole in Wall / Bristol Point.

Yeah, Jervis Bay is great. The main issue is not having a spot protected from all wind directions, you need to choose the anchorage depending on the forecast. And even protected from the southerly in Hole in the Wall, there's always a bit of swell which makes sleeping not the most pleasant experience.
The exception being the Curambene Creek in Huskisson, I spent one night in the courtesy mooring there (I didn't know there was one), great spot, about here:

Great video Jaun. I don't know why Jervis Bay does not get much consideration from TS people. We were there about fifteen years ago and loved the true breezes, clear water and the friendly dolphins. On our first night we went in behind a breakwater in the creek an hour and half after high tide and next high was 7:00am so we dried out ok but the morning high was nowhere us. The compensation was the breakwater was covered with oysters and the locals said they were OK so we spent the day gourging on oysters. One afternoon we weathered a Southerly Bluster on a mooring in Callula Bay but that soon went through. Always meant to go back but never made it.
