New Years Eve at Anagada?

We are new sailors and new to this community. Looking for advice on where would be a less crazy but still fun mooring for New Years in the BVI. All advice appreciated!

Uuuummmmmmmmmmmmm you want LESS crazy?

So in years to come people ask you and you said: yessssss, we didnt go THERE, we wanted LESS crazy?

Are you CRAZY?

The ONLY place in the whole world of the BIVs at New Years Eve is Foxys at Jost Van Dyke. The whole craziness of it is what makes the BVis wonderful.

At anchor it is quiet. All the action is ashore, but not in a New York kinda way, in a BVIs kinda way.

I thoughly recommend FOXs on New Year's Eve. It will be a year you remember.

What happens on Anagada on New Years Eve? Nothing. Everyone is at Foxys.

Re: New Years Eve at Anagada?

If you mean Anegada in the BVI's there will be no one there as stated..
Personally I think Foxy's is insane on NYE ..the anchoring mooring situation is flat out dangerous with the late arrivals dropping in and on who evers there already and then lots of very drunk people in boat... but luckily here in the VI's we are experienced at this!!
Sopers will probably have a place open..Red hook on St Thomas will be happening to some degree.. so will CRuz bay on St John and actually Check in with Skinny legs in Coral bay St John for more chill location that will have a lot of cruis

I think we should start a new tradition in the BVIs, I think Anegada is a great idea! We will be in the BVIs, but we were thinking that Foxy"s was going to be too crowded.

Re: New Years Eve at Anagada?

Trellis Bay has a large mooring field with lots of room and they throw an excellent New Years party- or at least they did last year. Had a buffet, fireballs, a couple of bands, Mocko Jumbies (not sure if that's what they're called- dancers on stilts) and a big finale. Felt much more family oriented. Organized by the art studio there which also organizes the Full Moon Party. Aragorn's Studio Fire Sculptures - Trellis Bay, British Virgin Islands We passed on Foxy's after being told how wild it gets there. Best to arrive at Trellis Bay a day early.

Re: New Years Eve at Anagada?

Trying to pick this thread up for 2013 - we'll be in the BVI as liveaboards this NYE. We're having friends join us for a few days and will be collecting them at Red Hook, St. Thomas. We DO want Foxy's craziness as a bucket list fulfillment. Should we get to Foxy's one day, two days before?

Two days before to "stake your claim". If you've not been there before, don't be surprised if a charter boat ends up anchored 5' in front of you with a 2:1 scope!!!

Thanks! If it gets too unsafe we'll move to Trellis Bay or the West End. Or maybe Little Jost and dinghy over!
