    SEA BADGER | RIB ~ 7 m

    Priory Bay is ideal for RIBS and smaller craft. Must watch the tides, as it can completely dry out. Watch out for sandbars, which dry out to seaward of the beach and have trapped a number of unwitting RIBs within the formed lagoons, which then subsequently dry out! A great spectator sport! Offers great protection for Westerlys and South Westerly. Can be annoying in the summer with the amount of RIB traffic and jet skis moving around.

    We anchored here for 2 nights. It was a bit rolly at night but good holding other and a good nights sleep.

    Lovely anchoring, only issue is water skiers/ ribs etc, although peaceful after 6pm. Rolly night, but it was 16k SW. Fiat calm this morning and very peaceful. Excellent anchor holding through 2 high and 1 low tide.
