From Trwyn Du follow buoyed channel to B10. Keep Castle in line with buoy to anchor in Pool in 2-3 m. Alternatively turn in to moorings anywhere between pier and Gallows Point.
Mooring buoys abound, many drying, some in navigable channel. Banks are steep-sided and of hard sand.
Uncomfortable on moorings, untenable at anchor, in north-easterlies; otherwise safe under all conditions within bay. Pool very exposed from most directions until banks show, then strong north-easterlies may break. In Bay, good holding; dries to mud with stone beach. Boats frequently beach at foot of stones at Gallows Point for access to N.W.V.Y.C. CLUBHOUSE and for scrubbing off.
