The approach from the east is straightforward but the currents were a little unpredictable. We met a 3 knot current where there is a shallow spit at 56deg 33.3min N ; 61deg 30.1min W. We tied up alongside a well maintained wharf and the local RCMP post cleared us in to Canada after a phone call to Corner Brook in Newfoundland issued us with a temporary CANPASS number.

We had no bad weather whilst there but there is an excellent landlocked anchorage at 56deg 30min N; 61deg 24min W about 5 miles away which I think would be safe in all conditions.

We followed the inner lead southwards for about 60 miles, exiting to sea at 55deg 56min N. This was easy to follow and very scenic.
