Description

Dakar's only anchorage located by the Cercle de Voile yacht club. Good holding in about 3 meter of water. The anchorage has a number of derelict vessels, some abandoned, and some with a caretaker living aboard. There are three wrecks in the anchorage, the location can be found on the CVD webpage. Prices for the anchorage can be found on the CVD webpage, you pay for the boat and for each crew member. In January 2019, the price for a week long stay and 4 people onboard was 50.000 CFD or about 76 Euro.

The water in the bay is very polluted, with a sewage drain emptying right into the anchorage, making it better to try and not touch the water. Be aware of the malaria risk.

The club runs a shuttle service to shore. The club is run down, especially the showers, but the people working in the club are very nice. It is possible to get laundry done, get diesel, get clothes sewn and they will do what they can to help you with what you need if you pay for their services. 

The people in the yacht club will advice regarding the formalities of checking into Senegal.
