Ujung Sikarakara (W Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

The coast between Tanjung Tabujung and Ujung Sikarakar, about 14 miles S, is fronted by many dangers, some of which lie just within the 10m curve.

Natal Road that lies off the coast between Ujung Sikarakara and Ujung Rakat, about 6 miles S, is open W and is encumbered with many dangerous shoals, rendering it one of the worst anchorages on the coast. The shore is fringed by a bank, with depths of less than 5.5m, extending about 2 miles offshore.

Teluk Batahan, about 8 miles wide, is an open bight and lies S of Natal Road between Ujung Sumur, about 2 miles S of Ujung Rakat and Ujung Palimbungan, about 10 miles S.
