Elworthy Island Anchorage

Elworthy Island Anchorage.  A delightful cozy anchorage lies behind Elworthy Island, a mile north of Church Point, roughly across Waddington Channel from the entrance to Pendrell Sound.  The aquaculture noted on charts no longer is present.  The island is called Alfred Island by Wolferstan, but in 1992 it was renamed Elworthy Island for seaman Richard Elworthy, who died serving freedom in 1942.  A handsome plaque is set into rock on the northeast corner of the island.

Enter the anchorage from either end, but watch for a drying rock near the north entrance.  The south entrance shallows to about 12 feet.   The island shoreline is covered in oysters.
