Chart to Bermuda

The Bermuda Approach

For planning purposes, when approaching Bermuda from the North, remember that reefs extend up to 10 miles from the Islands in a northward direction.  It is advisable to keep well to the East and to make St. Davidís Head bearing more than 226°.  The approach will be covered extensively at our April 18th meeting at Osprey Point Yacht Club. 

Checking Into Customs

Is your passport current?  Vessels should enter St. George's Harbour flying the yellow quarantine flag "Q" from the spreader and must proceed to the customs clearance dock on the north side of Ordinance Island.  The "Q" flag should remain hoisted until clearance is obtained.  We will elaborate on the clearance procedure at our April 18th meeting at Osprey Point Yacht Club. 

Where to Dock

After clearing customs, proceed to St. George's Dinghy Club.  New docking facilities have been built with some slips and Mediterranean mooring available.  There is electric and water on the docks.  Shower facilities are also available. 

St Georges Dinghy Club

Our host club offers a most hospitable atmosphere over looking St. George's Harbour.  It is a wonderful facility where we can all discuss our experiences on a expansive deck.  Our awards dinner will be held here.  The Dinghy Club offers convenient access to bus and taxi pick up although it is only a short walk into St. George's Parish.
