Looking offshore, I spotted a sailboat on a heading that would bring it directly into the sandbar.
I knew from surfing that spot that the water depth at this time was around 3 feet.
The approaching sloop was around 45 feet in length and I also knew she had a fixed keel and that she would be drawing at least 4 feet.
I told the other guys who were there filming with me to watch as the sailboat neared the sandbar.
We all got this footage of this grounding of the sailboat.
I hope you enjoy my version of the events that took place on March 13, 2021.
As I state below; Boca Raton Inlet: “Safe Passage Requires Local Knowledge”.
Enjoy this video of all of the incredible boats coming into and going out of Boca Raton Inlet.
Boca Raton, Florida Inlet is considered a dangerous inlet.
It is a narrow, dredged cut located 5 nm northward of Hillsboro Inlet Light.
The inlet has a Bascule Bridge with 23 foot vertical clearance for boaters.
Local knowledge is required at this inlet as shoaling outside the inlet can limit access at low tide.
Depths on the sandbar change frequently due to shoaling and shifting.
Swift moving currents can cause swells when the outflow of the inlet meets the ocean.
The inlet channel and markers are not charted and the transit is considered dangerous. “Safe Passage Requires Local Knowledge”
