Thanks for the report. Curious about your itinerary - going strait to North Sound and then Anegada (and the rest). Was that done to go out synch with normal cruisers (Norman first night, working your way up to North Sound by third night, then to Anegada?

The crew I had were all experienced and had sea legs - I do try to stay ahead or behind the normal itinerary if weather allows to avoid the crowds .We also started our itinerary from Fats Hogs Bay on a fairly flat sea .

I am very strong believer or having an A and B itinerary depending on crew , weather ,swells etc... remembering everyone on board is on vacation seeking a good relaxing time

We counted 23 sails on Tuesday heading from North Sound to Anegada - and that was from our vantage point sailing to Jost. Lots of boats out this week. We skipped Anegada this trip - maybe April/May when it is more favorable for our favorite anchoring spot.

Nice to hear you had a fantastic trip. Just wondering what boat you sailed? We own the Leopard 45, Stargazer. I really love that boat, very roomy and great to sail. I'm also very pleased with Captain's Compass new location at Fat Hog's Bay. We even walk to get groceries at both the small grocery store and at the marina and Riteway just a couple buildings down the road. I agree with you about the ease going directly to North Sound from Fat Hog Bay. It does allow you the opportunity of jumping ahead of the other charters. Can't wait to be back down in 60 days.
