Great information! Do conditions prevent going ashore for dinner with the dinghy Is it too rough to plan on doing this regularly. This was our routine when in the BVIs and we found many great spots for evening dining.

The road to and from the airport (Welfare Road) will reopen on 12/09. The traffic has been a nightmare while the road has been one way because of changes inn the water supply system. It has been taking hours to get through Cole Bay.

Suggested itinerary, if you like to explore:
Day 1: late start, head to Baie Columbier, anchor and have dinner aboard (no facilities). You can hike over the hill to the north side of St. Barts if you have time or do this the next morning.
Day 2: short sail to the open anchorage off the fort by Gustavia. Check in with the port captain, have a Cheeseburger in Paradise for lunch, check out the town and pick out a nice restaurant for dinner.
Day 3: 16 miles or so to Orient Bay. Make sure you know how to approach it. Anchor off Club Orient, beach your dinghy, and walk to the center of the beach. Rent a chaise and enjoy the scenery and the great beach. Pick a restaurant for dinner.
Day 4: Sail to Road Bay, Anguilla, check in with customs and look for the restaurant run by expat Brits near the commercial pier.
Day 5: Sail to Grand Case, and dinghy in to the pier (don't forget the stern anchor), spend some time to figure out which of the nice restaurants looks best (it would be hard to make a bad choice!).
Day 6: Return to Oyster Pond by noon.

Some caveats: You may want to eliminate the Anguilla stop if the conditions are not right for you. If it is rough, you ought to skip Orient Bay, as it can get dicey as you approach. Marigot would be an alternate if you need one.
