There are three recommended anchorages along the course of the Umbrella Creek alternate route. This passage is designed to allow cruisers to avoid often ROUGH St. Andrew Sound.
Captain Davis’ remarks below refer to the anchorage in Umbrella Creek, west of the marked alternate route.
We entered from the Jekyll Sound end [Umbrella Creek] . There is a nine foot bar, but deep inside. Both sides are grass so no wind protection. Under settled conditions it makes a good stop.
