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.

Re: Anegada advice?

Last trip I left from Cooper Island around 6:30am and got to Anegada before 1030 to a wide open mooring field. By 1130 or 12 it was pretty much full, although moorings sporadically opened up and filled again quickly in the afternoon. As long as the wind has little or no northerly component to it you should make great time.

Re: Anegada advice?

Rather than starting a new post, will post here.

I am wondering if anybody has done the beach trekking from Loblolly Bay back to the Setting point, starting westward (towards Cow's Wreck). It is about 10 miles. By looking on Google Earth it looks mostly sandy beach with a short stretch of rocks.
a) has anybody done this and is it worth the effort? I love the remoteness and the ocean crashing on the reef at Anegada.
b) is it advisable to sleep on the beach rather than rushing to do it in one go as I would try to avoid the peak sun hours?
