Anegada advice?

We ar going to be chartering a Lagoon 450 in January 2017. Looking for one advice on departure points for an Anegada passage.

We would like to be at Scrub Island for THe January Full Moon, bit would like to go to Anegada the next day. What is the average sailing time if the winds and seas are favourable for leaving Scrub and making Anegada around noon - 1:00 pm? Or are we best to just make the trip from North Sound and re-jig the schedule, maybe pass up the Full moon over at Trellis Bay.

Thoughts and experiences are welcome. We still have a while to work out a rough sail plan.

Re: Anegada advice?

Hey, Welcome Aboard!

Anegada from Scrub Isl. is no problem. We've been there several times. We usually leave from North Sound. That's about a 2-21/2 hr. trip almost due N. Assuming you're leaving from Marina Key, you will need to go around the east end of the island and head about 30 degrees, maybe 3 hrs+. It is usually a comfortable reach. Be careful going into the moorage; really, really shallow. The entrance is to the north of the moorage and follow the buoys carefully. We like the Wonky Dog for dinner, really nice folks. And take time to see the island, or what there is of it. Try the Cow Wreck Beach bar on the north shore.
Fair Breeze!

Thanks for the time frame. We usually leave from North Sound. Just needed to know that given some good weather conditions, we were not looking at adding too much time to the trip. We do want to be in around noon. Really appreciate the advice so we can set a preliminary sail plan to discuss with the rest of our group.
