The Strait provides some of the most beautiful sailing north of the Caribbean, as the waters are clean, generally calm and warm. The prevailing winds here are WSW at 10-15 knots and the Strait is virtually free of fog. There are numerous beaches along the shore that are simply beautiful, and good anchorage almost everywhere for a swim, a barbeque or even for a few days if your schedule permits. Overnight anchorages are quite appealing as there is not much commercial traffic that can rock you all night. And the sunsets? Well, you”ll have to see them to believe them!

The Dobson Yacht Club sits on the western shore of the South Arm, directly opposite the Sydney downtown area. Its location on the chart (4266) is shown as Dobsons Point, formerly known as Shingle Point. The Club is justly proud of its facilities, which are the finest and most extensive in Sydney Harbour. The Club, with its newly renovated interior, harbourside lawn, and beautiful vista of the Sydney waterfront is also a major social centre on the Westmount shore of Sydney Harbour.
The primary goals of The Dobson Yacht Club are to provide first class boating facilities for its members and to promote the pastime of sailing and power boating in a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere. We invite non-members to be our guests and to join in the various activities that take place at the Club. Sydney Harbour is safe to enter in any weather, including thick fog. In early summer (May 15 to July 15) the Cape Breton coast, including the entrance to Sydney Harbour, is littered with lobster traps. The best approach, to avoid fouling a trap buoy, is to follow the fairway, which is marked by two fairway buoys (SA and SC) and a pair of range lights. Once past South Bar there are no more lobster traps.
