House Bay, Dassen Island

A stop at Dassen can often make perfect sense, its a break in the 62 mile trip from Cape Town to Saldahna, or when the weather turns, in our case it was just a clever over night stop before setting off to Hout Bay the next morning.

Safe only when the wind is from the south, which is the Cape Town side, or South West being the Hout Bay side. We are anchored in about 7.5mtrs of water at high tide here, January 14th 2002 (was it that long ago!)

An old salt told me to use a heading of 215 degrees magnetic on the wooden pier on the shore, check that yourself please!
