Road Bay Fit

Z:
SXM = damn, that's a crazy story...............that whole Phillisburg/Simpson bay thing was not for me = too busy, bridge thing, etc..........sure it's a thief's paradise.

OK, onto to more positive things.............Road Bay is pretty big. It's very popular for Carnival (8/1) and many boats come over from SXM. They were jammed into bar/beach area (ie;Johnnos, immigration, etc) . I'm trying to think of another one to compare to.............reminds me of Roadtown with out the long channel coming in ........seems bigger than Cane Garden Bay - deeper & rounder

Here's a short video clip I just found.........scroll down to screen aka Sandy Ground

Just found a photo that does a better job:

I was to the left (out of frame) of the wreck (bottom) and there was plenty of room behind me.

Due to strange fee structure many yachts skip anguilla and many powerboats + cats gather very close to beach (top slightly left) rafted up and double/triple parked leaving the rest of the bay available for anchoring with swing room..........that yellow comm'l boat is at the comm'l dock and the beach goes away toward the wreck & beyond so the crowd does not come down that way.
There was plenty of room during Carnival which included Island local sailboat races (big fun & very entertaining) .........it was full of noise but it was Carnival.........
Ask away if you need more.
