Sector 5. New Caledonia

Tonnere bears 094°, passing between the S entrance point of the bay and Ilot Tien’ghiene. Those vessels bound for Baie de Tanle should continue on the above 328° course as far N as Recif Bonn’mahame. Then change course NE and pass N of this reef on a course of 086°, by keeping the small cliff on the N end of Boh Island open slightly to the right of the SE point of the peninsula, located just N of the island. This course clears the sunken spit that projects N from Recif Bonn’mahame. Presqu’ile de Poum (20°17'S., 164°03'E.), whose SE side

5.43

forms the NW side of Baie de Tanle, rises to a height of 417m at Sommet Poum. The peak on this peninsulas NW side is pointed and easily made out. Ile Neba and Ile Yande to the NW of the peninsula cannot be mistaken for any other land. Caution.—A patch, with a depth of 5.5m, lies about

5.43

3.5miles W of the S end of Presqu’ile de Poum, and a reef that dries lies the same distance WNW.

5.44 Baie d’Ohope (20°17'S., 164°02'E.) indents the SW

side of Presqu’ile Poum and affords excellent protection against the prevailing winds. However, during strong E or NE winds, heavy squalls descend from the high land of Presqu’ile Poum into the bay as well as along the entire W side of the peninsula. A small reef lies off the bays S entrance point.

Vessels with local knowledge can obtain anchorage in Baie d’Ohope, in depths of 12.8 to 14.8m, mud, about halfway be- tween the bays entrance Points.

5.44 5.44

Passe de Poum (20°15'S., 163°53'E.) lies about 9 miles NW

of Passe de la Gazelle, and it is about 1.5 miles wide between the SE end of Grand Recif des Nenema and the N end of Grand Recif de Poum. During the change of tide, a bore is encoun- tered in the passage. Tidal currents can reach 2 knots in Passe de Poum.

5.44

Directions.—Vessels with local knowledge can transit Passe

de Poum with Sommet Poum, 414m high, bearing 092°. Vessels bound N after entering the passage head for Ilot Mouac (20°13'S., 164°01'E.), bearing about 077°, until the W end of Ile Baaba opens E of Ile Neba, bearing less than 359°, when she should change course N and pass between Ile Neba and Rocher Oualaouate (20°10'S., 163°59'E.), which dries.

5.45 Baie Banare (20°12'S., 164°01'E.) is entered between Presqu’ile de Poum and Presqu’ile Bouabon’de, about 5 miles N; its shores are coral-fringed and several islets and rocks lie within it, which are best shown on the chart. The islets are all wooded or cultivated and coral-fringed. The village of Boue- manda lies on Pointe Bouemanda, the N end of Presqu’ile de Poum.

5.45

The area between the N side of Presqu’ile de Poum and Ile

Mouac is known as Canal Mouac. This passage is about 0.3 mile wide between reefs on either side and has a least depth in the fairway of about 7m. A 4m patch, marked on its NW side by a buoy, lies about 0.6 mile SW of the SE end of Ile Mouac. Canal Mouac provides access for vessels with extensive local knowledge to the anchorage in the S part of Baie Banare for vessels from the S.

Anchorage.—The anchorages described below all require extensive local knowledge.

5.45

Temporary anchorage may be taken on the S side of the entrance to Canal Mouac, about 1.3 miles WSW of Pointe Bouemanda, in a depth of 7.6m, sand. There is a landing stage,

5.45

Pub. 126

20m long ,with a 3m depth alongside, situated about 0.5 mile ESE of Pointe Bouemanda.

The best protected anchorage lies about 0.3 mile ENE of Pointe Bouemanda, in a depth of 7.3m, sand and mud. Anchorage may be found about 10.1 mile NE of the NE end

5.45 5.45

of Ilot Mouac, in a depth of 10.1m, sand and mud, taking care to avoid the shoal extending WNW from Ilot Yeuoe. Anchor- age may be obtained, in a depth of about 6.4m, about 0.5 mile NE of Rocher Pouragan, which lies on the reef fringing the SE end of Presqu’ile Bouabon’de, with the NW ends of Ilot Paaio and Ilot Pionne in line, bearing 221°, open SE of Rocher Pour- agan.

5.45

There are several other anchorages for small vessels, pro-

tected from SE winds. These are 0.2 mile ENE of Ilot Yeuoe, in a depth of 5.8m; about 0.2 mile NNE of Recif Bai, situated 0.35 mile N of Ilot Yeuoe, in a depth of 5.8m; and 1.25 miles NNE of the N extremity of Ilot Nen’diale about 0.5 mile offshore, in depths of 5.8 to 7m, mud.

5.45

Directions.—Vessels with extensive local knowledge util-

izing Canal Mouac pass S of the red buoy marking the shoal SW of the Ile Mouac and N of the black buoy, whose position is approximate, lying about 0.9 mile SW of Pointe Boue- man’da. When the NW end of Ile Mouac bears 327°, steer about 055°, passing E of the shoal off the SE coast of Ile Mouac and then to the anchorage.

5.45

Vessels approaching the anchorage off Pointe Bouemanda

from the N, should pass off the W sides of Ilots Yaba and Paaio, and then pass E of Ilot Touaye to avoid the foul ground. Ile Neba (20°09'S., 163°56'E.), the W of the islands lying off

5.45

Baie Banare, is flat in the center with several hills at either end, and is covered with coconut palms. Vessels with local know- ledge can obtain temporary anchorage, in a depth of about 16m, off the middle of the W side of Ile Neba.

5.45

Basse LoLo, a rock with a depth of 4m, lies about 1.8 miles

S of the SE end of Ile Neba. Depths of 5.1m and 6.9m lie 1 mile WSW and 2 miles ESE, respectively, of Basse LoLo. A patch, with a depth of 8m, whose position is doubtful, lies 3 miles WNW of the N end of Ile Neba.

5.46 Ile Baaba (20°03'S., 163°59'E.) lies off the NW ex-

tremity of New Caledonia, being separated from it by a narrow boat channel. The E side of Ile Baaba is clear of dangers; the W side has a reef projecting about 2.3 miles W from its N end, and there are several islets on it.

5.46

Ilot Yenghiebane, lying close S of Ile Baaba, is a dull red-

colored islet with a village on its NE side. Small vessels with local knowledge can obtain anchorage, off the NW side of Ilot Yenghiebane, in depths 7 to 11m. A 5m patch, whose position is approximate, lies about 1.3 miles W of the W side of the islet.

5.46

Ile Yande (20°03'S., 163°49'E.), rising to 326m in its N part,

lies about 7.5 miles W of Ile Baaba. The E side of the island is bold, while the W side has a gentle slope. There are coconut plantations in the island. A reef extends along the islands SW shore.

5.46

Vessels with local knowledge can obtain anchorage, in a

depth of about 22m, sand and coral, protected from the prevail- ing SE wind off the W side of Ile Yande, with the NW end bearing 047° and the W end, bearing 152°. There is a con- tinuous swell at the anchorage. During SW winds, vessels may Page 1  |  Page 2  |  Page 3  |  Page 4  |  Page 5  |  Page 6  |  Page 7  |  Page 8  |  Page 9  |  Page 10  |  Page 11  |  Page 12  |  Page 13  |  Page 14  |  Page 15  |  Page 16  |  Page 17  |  Page 18  |  Page 19  |  Page 20  |  Page 21  |  Page 22  |  Page 23  |  Page 24  |  Page 25  |  Page 26  |  Page 27  |  Page 28  |  Page 29  |  Page 30  |  Page 31  |  Page 32  |  Page 33  |  Page 34  |  Page 35  |  Page 36  |  Page 37  |  Page 38  |  Page 39  |  Page 40  |  Page 41  |  Page 42  |  Page 43  |  Page 44  |  Page 45  |  Page 46  |  Page 47  |  Page 48  |  Page 49  |  Page 50  |  Page 51  |  Page 52  |  Page 53  |  Page 54  |  Page 55  |  Page 56  |  Page 57  |  Page 58  |  Page 59  |  Page 60  |  Page 61  |  Page 62  |  Page 63  |  Page 64  |  Page 65  |  Page 66  |  Page 67  |  Page 68  |  Page 69  |  Page 70  |  Page 71  |  Page 72  |  Page 73  |  Page 74  |  Page 75  |  Page 76  |  Page 77  |  Page 78  |  Page 79  |  Page 80  |  Page 81  |  Page 82  |  Page 83  |  Page 84  |  Page 85  |  Page 86  |  Page 87  |  Page 88  |  Page 89  |  Page 90  |  Page 91  |  Page 92  |  Page 93  |  Page 94  |  Page 95  |  Page 96  |  Page 97  |  Page 98  |  Page 99  |  Page 100  |  Page 101  |  Page 102  |  Page 103  |  Page 104  |  Page 105  |  Page 106  |  Page 107  |  Page 108  |  Page 109  |  Page 110  |  Page 111  |  Page 112  |  Page 113  |  Page 114  |  Page 115  |  Page 116  |  Page 117  |  Page 118  |  Page 119  |  Page 120  |  Page 121  |  Page 122  |  Page 123  |  Page 124  |  Page 125  |  Page 126  |  Page 127  |  Page 128  |  Page 129  |  Page 130  |  Page 131  |  Page 132  |  Page 133  |  Page 134  |  Page 135  |  Page 136  |  Page 137  |  Page 138  |  Page 139  |  Page 140  |  Page 141  |  Page 142  |  Page 143  |  Page 144  |  Page 145  |  Page 146  |  Page 147  |  Page 148  |  Page 149  |  Page 150  |  Page 151  |  Page 152  |  Page 153  |  Page 154  |  Page 155  |  Page 156  |  Page 157  |  Page 158  |  Page 159  |  Page 160  |  Page 161  |  Page 162  |  Page 163  |  Page 164  |  Page 165  |  Page 166  |  Page 167  |  Page 168  |  Page 169  |  Page 170  |  Page 171  |  Page 172  |  Page 173  |  Page 174  |  Page 175  |  Page 176  |  Page 177  |  Page 178  |  Page 179  |  Page 180  |  Page 181  |  Page 182  |  Page 183  |  Page 184  |  Page 185  |  Page 186  |  Page 187  |  Page 188  |  Page 189  |  Page 190  |  Page 191  |  Page 192  |  Page 193  |  Page 194  |  Page 195  |  Page 196  |  Page 197  |  Page 198  |  Page 199  |  Page 200  |  Page 201  |  Page 202  |  Page 203  |  Page 204  |  Page 205  |  Page 206  |  Page 207  |  Page 208  |  Page 209  |  Page 210  |  Page 211  |  Page 212  |  Page 213  |  Page 214  |  Page 215  |  Page 216  |  Page 217  |  Page 218  |  Page 219  |  Page 220  |  Page 221  |  Page 222  |  Page 223  |  Page 224  |  Page 225  |  Page 226  |  Page 227  |  Page 228  |  Page 229  |  Page 230  |  Page 231  |  Page 232  |  Page 233  |  Page 234  |  Page 235  |  Page 236  |  Page 237  |  Page 238  |  Page 239  |  Page 240  |  Page 241  |  Page 242  |  Page 243  |  Page 244  |  Page 245  |  Page 246  |  Page 247  |  Page 248  |  Page 249  |  Page 250  |  Page 251  |  Page 252  |  Page 253  |  Page 254  |  Page 255  |  Page 256  |  Page 257  |  Page 258  |  Page 259  |  Page 260  |  Page 261  |  Page 262  |  Page 263  |  Page 264  |  Page 265  |  Page 266  |  Page 267  |  Page 268  |  Page 269  |  Page 270  |  Page 271  |  Page 272  |  Page 273  |  Page 274  |  Page 275  |  Page 276  |  Page 277  |  Page 278  |  Page 279  |  Page 280  |  Page 281  |  Page 282  |  Page 283  |  Page 284  |  Page 285  |  Page 286  |  Page 287  |  Page 288  |  Page 289  |  Page 290  |  Page 291  |  Page 292  |  Page 293  |  Page 294  |  Page 295  |  Page 296  |  Page 297  |  Page 298  |  Page 299  |  Page 300  |  Page 301  |  Page 302  |  Page 303  |  Page 304  |  Page 305  |  Page 306  |  Page 307  |  Page 308  |  Page 309  |  Page 310
