Hi Roger,

You know, they have a stoplight now in Roadtown, although only one.

If you''re getting out of the marina on the 3rd and back in on the 9th, you can do Anagada but you''ll miss some other good stops. Really depends on how much time you want to sail vs. lime (just kick back).

A typical intenerary these days might go;

-Moorings Base to Cooper
-Cooper to Baths to North Sound VG
-North Sound to Marina Cay / Trellis Bay
-Marina Cay to Monkey Pt. to Cane Garden Bay
-Cane Garden to Jost plus Sandy Spit area
-Jost to Sopers Hole to Norman
-Norman to Base

This gives a different anchorage each night with no sail longer than 2 to 3 hours in normal conditions. If you include Anagada, go from North Sound and return to Cane Garden or Jost the next day. Of course, there are lots of other stops to choose from too, you''ll see those on the chart.

IMHO Anagada deserves 2 days minimum. Some folks stay up there the whole trip.

There are great casual dining opportunities at every location listed with the possible exception of North Sound. It''s a little more formal.

You didn''t ask but you do want to be a bit more careful this trip than your last visit. Charter boats have been robbed lately, a few people, sailors, have been injured during during these incidents. Be sure to lock up your dinghy in populated areas.

That said, it''s still one of the special spots in the world. Hope you have a wonderful trip.

Dudley
