No need for BB last night at great harbor on jvd.

Several fcfs moorings were available all night.

In the past 10 days, the only place we're BB would have been the way to get a ball was Cooper, because unfortunately, so many fcfs balls were converted to BB that choice has been taken away from us.

Once saba and bitter end balls return to service, there will be no purpose for BB ball at North sound.

Until they convert more balls. Unless of course you book your charter with boatyball.

Hadn't thought of this- headed down Aug 1 for the first time in 3 years now and still learning the current state of things. Does this statement imply that getting a ball on Leverick is now more challenging because it's the only place to get a mooring in North Sound? Have never ever shown up to find Leverick full, but wondering now if I have to worry...

We were there a couple weeks ago - not full then, and August would likely be less crowded. But back in March - full by early afternoon. Plenty of anchoring room, of course.

When we were down at the end of February every mooring field we were in was full except the Bight. Very different situation in the off season. Its going to be a zoo during the next high season. This will continue until Saba and BEYC reopen. It will also help when Sopers and Trellis have some on shore attractions to bring boaters into those anchorages.
