Orontes Beacon

This beacon marks the northern end of the Orontes Bank. When sailing from Adelaide to Port Vincent one needs to pass this beacon to port.

When we sailed across the gulf we navigated using a GPS, but found out that the coordinates we had for this beacon were inaccurate; about half a nautical mile out. When we passed the beacon we marked it on the GPS, so now I have an accurate reading for the next voyage.
