Havre Gosselin on the west coast of Sark, and La Greve de la Ville Bay on the east coast of Sark, both provide public yellow buoy moorings for visiting boats.
Anchorages are available in various bays around Sark
Creux Harbour has the space for a small amount of boats to dry out, this is a useful option due to the nearby toilet facilities
La Maseline Harbour and the area outside Creux Harbour do not offer any visitor moorings and boats must not moor alongside the jetty as it is in constant use by the incoming Ferry Services.
Sark is just 3 miles long and 1 ½ miles wide., giving it 40 miles of breath-taking coastlines that are amongst the most picturesque in the world.
The approaches (Usually from Guernsey or Jersey) are pretty straightforward, though its best to keep some distance off until you head for your chosen anchorage. All the moorings located around the two harbours are private.
There are 2 very small harbours on the East coast: Maseline in the North is for passenger vessels and freight but Creux Harbour offers a limited amount of accommodation if your boat can take the ground and run an anchor to stern and a bow line to the quay.
One of the best ways to take in this beautiful islands charms is to anchor overnight in one of the sheltered bays Sark has to offer. Probably the best choices are Havre Gosselin or Grand Greve on the West and Dixcart Bay and Derrible Bay on the South of Big Sark.
There are privately run moorings for visiting yachts on both sides of the island. O the East coast north of the Point Robert Lighthouse you have Greve de la Ville. And on the West you have Havre Gosselin (This has a small landing stage for shore access) Head for the yellow buoys. As we are writing this, there are no charges for the use of these, however a donation for the upkeep can be paid at the visitor centre.
