A pleasant, secluded anchorage, except that there were thousands of yellow jacket wasps.

We strung up a mosquito net over the dodger after we both got stung.

The wasps love beer. I took a swig of my beer and spat out more than one wasp.
I then poured the rest of my beer into a tupperware, and there were 9 more wasps in there.

It is best to ignore the wasps rather than chase them away.

I rotated the ring pull of my beer cans over the hole to act as a bit of a filter to stop them getting in (and maybe stop them getting out too:-).

We anchored close to the old steel dock structure, and at one point we took a line to the steel frame to point us out of the bay.
