Grüsse aus Deutschland, Lampe.

I spent last New Year's moored in Trellis bay, but I went there a day early and even then was lucky to get a mooring ball. I will be in the BVI for New Year this year as well and am debating anchoring in Great Harbour, JVD and walking ashore or going the opposite route and celebrating up in Anegada. The North Sound offers not only many mooring balls but lots of good holding around Prickly Pear island and I'm sure that Leverick Bay will have a big party.

Trellis Bay was a blast on New Year's 2006. Don't know if they are still allowed to hold that big celebration there anymore. It was free -- buy your own selections of drinks and various foods all along the beach. Several bands and unusual things and lots of fun. Need to arrive there at least a day early in order to secure a mooring.

As for Foxy's, the harbor gets pretty filled up with boats. We have encountered problems there with several boats having twisted anchor chains/rodes during crowded conditions overnight. We preferred to take a mooring in Soper's Hole and take one of the many, many "ferries" available especially for New Year's Eve. Same rule applies: arrive at least a day early in order to find a mooring. I think they also run ferries from Foxy's to Cane Garden Bay on New Year's Eve so it isn't necessary to anchor in Great Harbour..

Hmm well it depends on what kind of night you are going for.

Absolute debauchery and waking up in someone else's boat?
Pick up a ball early in Norman Island
Have Dinner at Pirate's Bight (Make reservations beforehand)
Then head over to Willie T's for a night you will not remember in the morning.

A bit more on the classy scale:
Park in Virgin Gorda and do the rounds at Saba rock, Bitter End or Leverick Bay.
There are a few great moorings more on the private side in Brias Creek.

Corsair's

Foxy's is a blast but, for my money, I'd go see Vinnie at Corsair's for dinner and then head to Foxy's for the party. It's just a stumble between the two. The trick will be getting a comfortable spot to anchor amidst the drunken masses. :>) Around the corner by Foxy's Taboo, there are moorings, well worth the $25 in my opinion just because no one can anchor too close and spoil your good night's sleep, but too far to walk and the taxi would probably be a hassle.

Foxy's in Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke is the place to be - OLD YEARS NIGHT! Perhaps as many as 500 boats - get a copy of Virgin Anchourages - they have them at Horizon Yacht Charters in Nanny Cay - very detailed and where and more importantly where not to anchor!

Not this year (oh how I wish!). And if I'm being really pessimistic
