Those days are gone. Most of the charter companies just want to know if Anegada is in your plans. The larger companies will sell you a copy of Walker's entrance chart.

It's an easy entrance frankly. Watch the water and your depth sounder. When in doubt, stay west.

I did it on a 42' Beneteau in November last year with relatively light air -- it took about two hours.

From Anegada the run to JVD is a wonderful sail. Marina Cay is only a coupe of hours.

For me, I tend to stop at Marina Cay before North Sound and then head East from Anegada - CGB, JVD, whatever.

With 25 years of BVI sailing behind me, I now find Little Harbor and White Bay, JVD to be preferable to Great Harbor and CGB. YMMV.

sail fast, dave
