    Nice spot for the evening. Disturbed night though as anchor dragged after 180 wind shift from SW to NE during night. Lots of pot bouys around too. Glad I was using "My Anchor" app.

    Sheltered anchorage, with a nice view! Prospect more pleasant than in Portland, a former naval base that looks a bit like a ghost town ...

    Mouillage abrité, avec une jolie vue! Perspective plus agréable qu'à Portland, ancienne base navale qui fait un peu ville fantôme...

    Nice anchoring spot north of NE entrance . Pay to Portland marina. Costs about 5 pounds per day if payed weekly. With use of Portland marina facilities. Be aware a swell can enter with strong E or S winds. Be aware of fishing farm directly north of entrance. Many buys in the water. Use castle cove beach to go to Weymouth.
