Vetch’s Bight – wreck of the Odd
Now that the sailing season is gaining momentum more boats will be entering Vetch’s Bight to anchor off the beach. If you do beware of the wreck of the ‘ODD’, a whaler that sank in the vicinity during the 1940’s.
The minimum depth is reported to be in the region of 1 m and the approximate position is shown on the image below.
A local yacht sustained significant damage when it hit the wreck a weeks ago so take heed when entering Vetch’s Bight ie: noting that the wreck is closer to the North breakwater than Vetch’s Reef.
