So your return from Anegada was to Trellis Bay; next day, did you head to JVD via the North coast of Tortola or take the SFDC ?

I'm thinking to stay away from Trellis do to airport noise, how was that?

Looked like superb sailing conditions!
We had not planned to visit Trellis Bay, but after the trip to and back from Anegada our jib had developed a tear which needed to be repaired. One on the guys from the charter company met us in Trellis and took the sail in the early morning. We exited out the cut between the Camanoe's and broad reached out way down to Cane Garden Bay, where we picked up the sail guys in the dinghy and they put the repaired sail back on the boat. After having lunch and going ashore to get some provisions "Caribe & Ice" I believe that we sailed over to Little Harbour JVD and had Lobster at Sydney's. We did not have any issues with airport noise at Trellis and the Last Resort was a good place to have dinner. We did pick a ball at the area furthest from the airport. If you are there during a Full Moon you should consider going to that at Trellis, otherwise skip it.

I'm thinking you mean Privateer or Kelly Coves. The Bight is really one of the best protected anchorage/mooring fields in BVI, IMO. There is about 30 ft of water you can anchor in on the northern edge of the entrance to the Bight, just south of Kelly's. If you are willing to spring for a mooring and get there early enough to grab one near the edges, you can snorkel right off your boat. Not saying its the best snorkeling, but its pretty convenient. You can certainly dinghy to the restaurant from Privateer, which can be rolly, but I would not want to have to do so at night. Pirates is fully remodeled and looks great, you'll not want to miss it.

We had a great trip and even got to see some Humpback Whales! I made a couple of Videos:

Going to and back from Anegada was a small craft advisory with a North swell running.

Re: BVI Sail Destination Times?

We just got back from our first trip to the BVIs. I found the distances shorter than I anticipated. We typically had a lazy morning and wouldn't head out until 9 am or so and were still in to most of our destinations by early afternoon (which is a good idea because some places fill up fast).

Examples of timing: We left Great bay on Peter Island, went to the Baths for a couple of hours and then sailed to Gorda Sound and were there by 3:30 or so. Conch Charters to Norman (Bight Bay) not much more than an hour or so. Bight Bay is party central, so if you prefer quiet, head to Great Bay on Peter.

We generally sailed most of the time with a few exceptions to save a couple of tacks.

Don 't think Conch will allow you to go to Anegada. Better check.

While it won't integrate data into a spreadsheet, I've snapped a pic of a screen more than once to capture data. If the data is actually on an iPhone app (such as weather or nav app), you just press the top and bottom buttons simultaneously and the screen shot goes on your camera roll. Pretty cool.
