Bow Creek Area

Beyond Stoke Gabriel

From the entrance to Stoke Gabriel Creek, keep close to the outer moorings on the Stoke Gabriel side of the river until reaching Mill Point. Once Stoke Gabriel church goes out of view behind Mill Point, turn to port and steer 260 degrees on course with the green beacon at the entrance to Stoke Gabriel astern and White Rock ahead.  (See Fig 15).

"Stoke Point" starboard lateral mark will be ahead of you - leave this buoy to starboard.

As you get near White Rock there is a barn on the far side of Bow Creek and when this lines up with the right hand edge of the near bank it is time to alter course with  slow turn to starboard to head towards Bow Creek (port lateral), a red can, unlit with White Rock astern and Langham Wood (starboard lateral), a green conical, unlit on the starboard bow.

If you wish to explore Bow Creek turn to port.
