    Wellington (Ontario) inlet-gctid365627

    About fifteen years ago I sailed into Wellington (Ontario) through an inlet leading to a small fishing dock and a tackle shop.

    From there and with a 3.6 ft draft I motored into West Lake.

    The guys at the tackle shop could give you over the phone an estimate of the water available to get inside.

    Has anyone been there lately?

    I personally have not been there, but a friend on mine was there last summer. He drafts 3' and was able to get in. Im going there this summer.

      It is now derdged annually to 6 feet and has 12 transient slips, new showers and washrooms in 2007 as there were none before.

      You may want to pick up or borrow a "Ports" book for this trip, they are worth it.

      The same people run the tackle shop and the docks Call "Tacklebox" on VHF 68

        I go into Wellington most years, (but not this year yet, of course.)

          How was the access to West Lake?

            You have to run between Gasket Island (a point, not really an island) and Garrat Island. It's narrow and shallow. If the light is right, it's quite do-able. When I went through the first time, I first explored it in the dinghy with a handheld depth sounder. That gave me the confidence I needed. I've done it with my 3888 but not yet the Tiara. I would, though. West lake is a great anchorage. Flat water but nice breezes, great sunsets.
