Does anyone know where I can print or download a FCFS overnight mooring ball map.
I would like to compare what my chances may be without relying on Boatyball.
Thanks in advance

Other than Cooper and Great harbor on Yost you will be fine almost anywhere if you arrive by 4. There are off course still numerous spots to anchor as well.

Cooper on Sunday 7/13 for the night is really my only concern. JVD doesn't bother me as Garner and Diamond Cay always seem to have openings. I think we can Dinghy from Garner to White Bay even though it is a longer haul but I also think we can get a cab too.
Cane Garden or Anegada would be the next most concerning in my opinion.

Both Cane Garden Bay and Anegada offer easy anchoring. I have not however noticed all Moorings taken at CDB in many years.

I would land taxi from Garner to White Bay...long way with weather and lots of crew. If you do it make sure you have a cell phone or better yet a VHF that works.

Cooper on Sunday will be an issue if you dotn get Boaty Ball. I am out the week before and can update you. Never had issue at CGB or Anegada. Try to avoid the standard CCW rotation and go off cycle...meaning maybe hit Cooper Wed

Use the webcams to check Cooper and CGB anchorages

I use boaty ball as a proxy in the season...meaning if open I wont stress about getting somewhere since I oculd always use a boaty ball

Thank you and your feedback would be great. Typically we go Clockwise so that we can see when boats arrive as a measure to go where they came from and it has always worked well. This trip we can't do that became of picking up crew and other reservations for dinners, slips and excursions they have made on specific days and I don't want to waste time and fuel traveling from one end of the islands to the next. I also know the Puerto Rican Navy will be headed in for Christmas in July too.
I have a slip at BEYC on 7/15 and a ball on 7/16 and a slip at Scrub on 7/21 and then a ball again at BEYC on 7/22.
Basically we are making the rounds on the 1st 8 days with our crew who has never been and then we change boats and my wife and I will go again with a much more flexible schedule for the next 7 days.
