Anchorage: Yopps Cove – Carter Creek

Posted Posted in Anchorages

I anchored here a while back for a short rest on a long trip and the anchorage was great except for a few things. Carter Creek is home to a few resorts and golf clubs making basic supplies expensive. The closest store, other than yacht club ship stores and tourist shops, was a 45 minute walk. The anchorage itself is easy to get into and the views are very pretty but the weekend motorboat traffic was very heavy creating the never-ending wake.

Waterway Guide

The Waterway Guide, an East Coast Sailor’s Bible

If you are going to be sailing on the east coast you need this resource.  The Waterway Guide comes both online and in the book form.  Whenever I have internet access I always consult the online database but when I am in areas with no cell service then I consult the book.  Either way Waterway Guide has the information you will be looking for.  I use this guide for all my route planning.
