Oh well he could be talking about reversing falls in the Bay of Fundy.

North America... and yes, salt water.... Not New Brunswick's reversing falls...

You can see the lat/long on the screen dump if you want a closer look. This is a fabulous place to hang out and watch these kayakers, esp during a summer evening with the low sun and good light. Really nice walk, about 45 minutes from Egmont where that suicidal fellow was launching off the pier. A clean warm lake for a quick dip on the way back. The shots here were taken on the flood, the optimum conditions, the spoil is at the opposite end of the narrows on the ebb and isn't quite as accessible.




Your turn, Fallard...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This is a fairly shallow, exposed anchorage. You might want to use your GPS for the approach.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It looks awfully like the anchorage on the island of Anegada taken from close inshore but there are too many boats there and I've never seen a painter/mooring ball with that long a line anywhere in the BVI.

Stocking Island, Georgetown, Bahamas and I would throttle the ***** with the extra long bridle. Unless its your boat Fallard, then it's totally acceptable

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin's got it. The photo was taken from the western end of the anchorage by Setting Point, Anegada. The relatively empty space in front of the boat is where the anchorage necks down. We were in the relatively small "annex" to the mooring field that is opposite Neptune's Treasure restaurant.

The bridle is from the charter boat, but the long line from the buoy was typical of the half dozen or so rental moorings at that end of the anchorage. Perhaps the longer scope is provided to deal with wave action that would develop when the wind shifts to a more southerly direction. You're right about the line from the ball being atypically long for the BVI.

This is the one anchorage in the BVI that I would not recommend approaching using "line of sight" navigation. You need to find the outer buoy and line up your approach through the reef. Anegada is a low-lying island, with the high point being trees, so you don't have any good landmarks as you approach from the open sea. For quite awhile Anegada was off-limits for most bareboat charters. In more recent times, the "channel" markers are more reliably and there are many more moorings available for your peace of mind.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks fallard! I've been into Anegada many times, but the new boat is 8.7 feet of draft so I am going to be anchoring outside and dinghying in; I haven't made it into the anchoring field with other boats but turn "right" after the entrance and anchor in excellent holding with 6-7 feet. The Navtech charts for Anegada are off by over 100 feet. Use the GPS and you'll drive straight over the "twin sisters" (2 big coral heads)! Nowadays the convoys heading to Anegada from Virgin Gorda in the late morning make it easier to get inside - just follow a boat you hope has a deeper draft than you do.


OK - Here goes with a picture that I hope won't be cracked too quickly:
