Re: Antigua anchorages and snorkeling spots

Any anchorage there is often going to be more dependant on the swell condition and direction that the wind.. which is always there from the Easterly quadrant.

This is particularly true in Barbuda where there's really no wind break anyway.. so which ever anchorage (and there are really only two viable spots, IIRC) has the easier swell is the one to use. As mentioned before you need to be comfortable with skinny water visual navigation... arrive midday, not in the evening.
