Anegada is well worth the trip - the beaches are wonderful.

It is now a much more popular destination than before, and during the season there is a regular armada of boats leaving the North Sound in the morning heading north to Anegada. You could join these vessels and enter the channel behind one that (a) looks like they know what they are doing and (b) has a deeper draft than you. My old boat was 7 feet draft and I didn't have much room under the keel but I never ran aground there.
Another option is to find out when the Sunsail or Moorings regattas plan on going up, and just tag along.
As mentioned elsewhere in this thread, there are some good resources on the web and I prefer to use the paper chart and the directions therein (coupled with the instructions in the supplied cruising guide on board).
