August 18 & 19

Additional information to follow.

There are two  shallow spots on the approaches to ABYC. The first is west of the most southern point of Ashbridge’s Bay Park. The second is west of the middle of the entrance to the main ABYC harbour.

Deeper draft boats that are coming to ABYC should stay a couple of hundred feet off the southernmost point of the park and stay close to the rocks on the south side of the entrance on the way into our harbour.
