Fermeuse, Newfoundland

This is the best-protected harbour between St John’s and Cape Race. Anchor off Sheeps Head with good holding and protection. The government dock inside Sheeps Head is well protected but crowded with fishing boats. It might be possible to find a berth there by rafting to a fishing boat. There is not much room to manoeuvre behind the outer breakwater of this dock.

Diesel is available from the service station on the main road, about 500m from the nearest dinghy landing. It is a long walk with jerry cans but someone will almost certainly give you a lift. The service station has a small store attached with basic supplies. There is wifi at the bar on the main road 2 km towards St John’s. The easiest place to get water is the marine service centre, by jerry can.
