French Wells

Tricky getting in! VPR (Visual Piloting Rules)and 'puckering' on the low tide, Sandy came through here in force. The channel between the bars at the entrance has shifted south. You will easily see the bars as long as the light and conditions are right. We saw 6+ feet most of the way, then briefly 5.2 to 5.6.Pucker time! This was VPR in good conditions, DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR CHART!
Once inside there is plenty of water but tons of current and holding is spotty, some of the bottom scoured, so look for a sandy spot closer to the sand bars that suit the winds and tides.
