    The passage in the dinghy is possible by putting oneself in the center, then navigation to Codrington. Small supermarket on the left when you arrive at the fishing port 200 meters away. It's already not bad for a place so far from everything.

    Le passage en annexe est possible en se mettant bien au centre, puis navigation jusqu'à Codrington. Petit supermarche à gauche en arrivant au port de pêche à 200 mètres. C'est déjà pas mal pour un endroit si éloigné de tout.

    The last hurricane broke a long piece of the sand dam away, where you now can enter the lagoon. Towards the north end of the breach, it has around 1,20 to 1,50 m (March 2019), getting a bit deeper in the lagoon, and then shallowing again towards Codrington. It’s mostly sand. Depth can change fast, due to swell and currents shifting sand. Northerly swell might stand against wind-induced waves coming out of the lagoon, creating a weird wave right at the rim. Work your way in very carefully (maybe dinghy and lead line first). Keep a good eye on the weather and sea conditions to not get trapped. Definitely for the adventurous one that wants to experience the surprised faces of locals seeing a boat in their lagoon!
