CAptain's Mate of the Month

The CA's amazing APP CAptain's Mate is available exclusively and free to CA members. However, we're keen to share some of its attributes and first-hand knowledge & some 'as live' reports with all of our followers - members and non-members alike. So, we're selecting our 'CAptain's Mate of the Month' for the next few months! This is just an example of the hundreds of new reports submitted every month.


October 2019:

North Barmore Island anchorage, Loch Fyne, Scotland: Excellent shelter from SE through to W. Anchorage is deep. Antares charts helpful to identify shallower water. Good anchorage just N of small dinghy slipway on the W side just N of the hotel. Anchor in 8m, you will swing out over deeper water. There are two hotel visitor buoys available though they seem ignored by the hotel and not maintained. We enquired in the hotel but reception clearly thought we had lost the plot asking about buoys in the bay. I think I’d rather use the anchor than trust the buoys. Lovely views N up Loch Fyne.
