My big concern is that after a two hour or so checkout we will be hard pressed to get away to an anchorage for the first night and will end up on the dock in Roadtown...

Any idea what to expect, or suggestions for a nearby anchorage for our first night out?

Tks
If you want to pick up a mooring, The Bight has 80 and is an easy sail from Road Town. It gives you your best chance of picking one up if it getting late and if you aren't lucky, you can always anchor. But ask your checkout skipper, he's sure to have a suggestion.
