Six days is pretty tight for a trip that includes Anegada.
The moorings at the Dogs are National Parks Trust balls and not appropriate to spend the night on. Some of the charter
companies require you leave someone aboard competent to move the boat
if the mooring
fails; there have been maintenance
shortfalls on the NPT balls. The bottom falls off pretty fast so anchoring
around The Dogs would be a trick.
You've already visited Norman, Cooper
, VG, and Trellis.
Get yourselves in gear
and get moving on day 1 for Marina Cay. There is some shallow water
diving along Guana that is nice. Good snorkeling on the Marina Cay reef.
Day 2 get going between 8 and 9 and head
for Anegada. There is a dive site NW of Anegada (the name of which escapes me) for which you may be able to arrange a rendezvous dive. The last I heard the only ball there (commercial only) was gone so you need accurate GPS
coordinates and someone to hover the boat
during the dive.
Day 3 stay at Anegada and visit Cow Wreck Beach and Flash of Beauty.
Day 4 sail Anegada to Jost Van Dyke. Stop to visit Sandy Spit or Green Cay and the night in Little Harbor (for a quiet group) or Great Harbor (for dinner at Foxy's or Corsairs for a rowdier group).
Day 5 anchor
behind Peter Island at Key Cay. Good snorkleing and shallow water
diving. Alternatively anchor
Bay on the South side of Norman Island.
Day 6 return to Roadtown.
Have a great time - next time do 9 or 10 days. With more time you can sometimes get one of the dive shops to meet you mornings or evenings and swap tanks
so you don't have to stop and refill yourself.
This year, I'd like to do Anegada, weather
permitting of course. We have 6 days this time. Captain
is an experienced sailor and navigator.
I had read a suggested itinerary to set out to the Dogs for the first night, then on to Anegada. Assuming one night on Anegada, what should the rest of our itinerary look like? We would like to fit in Jost this time.
Note that we are scuba
divers so diving stop suggestions are welcome.
With 20-25 knots last trip, we were limited from some of the less-travelled moorings and anchorages. We are hoping to fit in more "off the beaten path" anchorages this time...
Thanks for any advice and recommendations you can provide.[/QUOTE]
