Wigham Cove Anchorage

Wigham Cove.  Wigham Cove, on the south shore of Yeo Island, is a popular anchorage and an excellent place to overnight before transiting Seaforth Channel.  Favour the west shore as your enter, until abeam the islets in the middle of the bay.  Then turn to pass north of the islets to be favoured anchorage in the northeast nook of the cove.  This nook has room for several boats.   We have shared this anchorage with a 60-footer and a 43-footer with no crowding at all.  An 80-footer was anchored in the southeast cove.

Dangerous Rock.  Be careful if you enter the southernmost nook of Wigham Cove.  A dangerous underwater rock with a depth of 0.5 meters at zero tides is reported lying close to and just east of the northernmost of the tree drying rocks that extend from the eastern shore of the entrance to Wigham Cove.  When entering this nook, favour the islets to the east.
