        thanks, we will try it for our first anchoring out adventure tonight around 11 pm, with a north westerly clocking to ENE wind by early morning. Our 29′ vessel only draws 3.5 feet. Still, anchoring, then watching to be sure it holds probably won’t be conducive to sleep. That may wait until t-docking at regatta pointe tomorrow night. S/V I imagine will report back sunday…

        This [De Soto Point] is an excellent anchorage and very popular with locals due to the nice beach and swimming area at the park. Weekends are crowded but it quiets down at night. DeSoto memorial park is worth visiting as well with a free museum and self guided walking tour. If the wind is blowing out of the northeast you could shoot across the way over to Emerson Point [Snead Island] which is another great anchorage with another great park to visit. No provisions nearby but you could head up river to nearby bradenton or palmetto and grocery is nearby via a cab (Publix).

        Very large anchorage with good depth for large boats. We were able to come in here after dark in a 68′ cruiser.
