Can’t seem to put together dates to sail with friends so…

Looking at doing a few nights at Leverick (or Bitter End or Saba), then ferry to Anegada for a couple nights and finally a couple on Jost or CGB.

Has anyone done something like this? If you have, any tips or insights?

That sounds like a lot of packing and unpacking and time wasted traveling. There is also the logistics to consider, and cost. Ferries to Anegada only run three days/week, plus a Sunday morning run. Getting from Anegada to Jost would involve a ferry to Road Town, taxi to West End and ferry to Jost. You don't say when you want to do this trip, but Cane Garden Bay is overrun with cruise ship people, although less so in very low season.

Have you looked at options? Maybe chartering a smaller monohull. Another option would be staying on Virgin Gorda, doing Dive BVI's day trip to Jost and a day trip by ferry to Anegada. Look at Guavaberry Spring Bay. Look at renting a house on Great Camanoe that comes with a boat to do day trips.

Yea I’m aware of the ferry schedules and I pack very light. But yes a good idea is to base on VG and do a couple day trips. Though I’d still love to do a couple nights on Anegada. Thanks for the tips.

We did an island hopping trip for two weeks in 2004, which inspired us to start sailing. There is a lot of time that gets sucked up with travel. Two islands works across two weeks, if the ferries line up.

Cheers, RickG

We stayed on VG and did a snorkeling excursion w Dive BVI ( I am pretty sure that was who it was) to Anegada. Some of the people on the boat did the snorkel tour and some were just passengers going to Anegada. That may be an option to get to Anegada and then take a ferry back to Tortola.
