PITTWATER: The Sailing Grounds north of Sydney

Pittwater

In March 1788, New South Wales first Governor, Arthur Phillip, explored the large expanse of water north of Sydney Cove and declared it was the finest piece of land he had seen. He named the area Pitt Water after England’s then Prime Minister, William Pitt.

To this day Pittwater remains a perfect sailing ground for novice or experienced sailors who wish to explore a variety of sailing conditions and exceptional scenery.

With its predominate nor-east sea breezes sweeping down over Barrenjoey Peninsula and offering protection from the Tasman Sea swells, one can comfortably sail the length and breadth of Pittwater, with its variety of coves and mooring spots, safely navigating  hundreds of nautical miles of pristine bays, inlets and rivers, opening up the possibilities of endless adventures.

Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, which lies between the western shores of Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River, is a fitting location for these stunning inlets and lower arms of the Hawkesbury/Broken Bay water system. Capping the scenery, this park offers spectacular cliffs carved from the local sandstone  rock, Hawkesbury Sandstone.

Sailing out of Pittwater up into one of the south-western arms of the Hawkesbury River, you have to remind yourself forcefully that you’re only 45 minutes (by road) from the hustle of central Sydney.

PittwaterThe Basin, a naturally enclosed lagoon featuring a great camping/picnic area was   once a vital refuge for coastal trading ships, and is now part of a National park. You’ll find historic Beechwood Cottage nestling peacefully in the back ground, immediately behind camping facilities and the day picnic area.

You can also find hundreds of popular public moorings in the infamous Refuge Bay and America Bay. In Australia’s early colonial days, these bays offered safe haven for convicts, smugglers and would-be pirates.

It’s a beautiful location, offering stunning scenery…grandiose sandstone cliffs jutting out over the bay, and a waterfall that seems to spring from the porous cliff before crashing into a pool below. What better place to take a refreshing soak or wash the day’s salt spray off your tied body?

Pick a spot  to anchor for the evening. If you happen to venture here, summer or winter,  the remote, untouched stillness takes hold of your imagination. Before long you can easily convince yourself you are the first explorer to venture into these parts . . . and they belong to you!

So if it’s seclusion and tranquillity you crave, don’t hesitate to explore;  the jagged bays of Pittwater will fulfill all your desires!
