We just came back from our BVI charter last week, and had a great time! Road Harbor is getting more and more large cruise ships coming in, so avoiding them is the best crowd control. They fill the open air taxis with the tourists and drive over to Cane Garden Bay, and the beach fills up. Otherwise, no crowds at all there. Anchoring overnight was without swells at CGB, although that is hit or miss. Try a website "windguru" and find the BVI forecast, as it gives wind speed, direction as well as wave height and directions. No "Christmas winds" this trip down, either.
Didn't do Anagada this time around, but for crowd control there, check with the SunSail and Moorings to learn when their flotillas are going there (usually on Wednesdays). The distances just aren't all that great, so we went from Road Town to Cooper Island, Bitter End, Yost Little Harbor, Norman Island, Peter Island, Cane Garden Bay, Road Town for our overnights.
Just get on Island Time quickly when you arrive, and have fun!
