Hi all, Thought I would post my June sail itinerary now that we are almost three weeks out. Getting that "OMG we are almost there!" <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />, and "OMG there is still so much to do before we leave!" <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" /> feeling

Here it is , thoughts appreciated. One question, Thinking of eating dinner one night at Sydney's Peace and Love. We were there two years ago and thought the food was pretty good and had a great time. Was wondering, since we are sailing from Anegada to Jost should we stay in Little Harbour the Monday, or the Tuesday? Not sure if Sydney's has there pig roast/BBQ on a Monday? So May switch the Little Harbour and Great Harbour days on Jost. Other advantage is that we would not be eating out two nights in a row...

Thursday, June 22 - Peter island
Friday, June 23 - Sale to Baths, then to leverick (depending on timing may stop at dogs), Jumbies BBQ
Saturday, June 24 - Sail to dogs, snorkle, lunch, and then to Marina Cay
Sunday, June 25 - Early morning sail to Anagada, arrive around noon, Cow Wreck Beach Bar, Dinner at the wonky dog…
Monday, June 26 - Anegada sail to Jost van dyke, stop off at Sandy Cay little jost, Green Cay, anchor in Little harbour, Dinner at Sydney’s
Tuesday, June 27 - Sail to Great harbour, moor, get to white bay
Wednesday, June 28 - Norman island, caves, dinner at Pirate's Bite
Thursday, June 29 - snorkel indians, last breakfast on the boat sail to Rd town return boat

We are down the June 22 to July 2. Your plan looks good, it's a long sail fromAnageda to JVD. Our key points are the Jumbies BBQ and Anegada the rest up to whims and winds.

Looks like quite a crowd will be down that last week of June.

I believe that jumbies are finished for the season. Restarting in November.

I could be wrong about the date. If that's the reason your going, you need to check,

My only suggestion is to swap your Sat and Sun itineraries. Unless you're specifically looking to maximize your sailing time, departing from North Sound to Anegada will shorten the sail by an hour (or more if NE winds though unlikely in June) giving you more beach time. On Sunday, it's 2 hrs to the Dogs from Anegada leaving you plenty of time to get to Marina Cay. On Monday, departing for JVD from Marina Cay instead of Anegada shortens this sail by 2 hours leaving you more time to visit Sandy Cay and/or Sandy Spit (and even Monkey Point).

That's a great suggestion. I am trying to think why we wanted to stop off at Marina Cay after Leverick. I think it was to go to the baths but we are now going to the baths after Peter Island so that change could definitely be made.

The only other advantage to going to Anegada on the Sunday is that a cruise ship is in Rd Town that day but don't imagine that Marina Cay would be that busy from cruise ship activity. Going from Marina Cay to Jost also allows us to visit Monkey Point for a snorkel.

We will be 2 moorings 4000 cats sailing around, if you see us give us a hail. Always interested in making new friends!

Which night are you planning to do the Jumbies BBQ at Leverick?

Looks like we will be at Leverick the same day. We will be in a slip. If you are on a slip as well I might ask for a tour of the Helia 44. Loved the look of those cats but have never been on one.

Lets have a drink in Leverick! - almost three weeks to go! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

This will
