The outer green buoy and the 2nd red buoy are missing.

The other buoys (outer red, innermost red, and innermost green) are on station.

The green channel marker is back in place at the entrance to the Anegada channel.

The second red buoy is still missing.

Any new updates on this topic? How were things on your recent trip to Anegada from a navigational point of view? Welcome back by the way!

No changes. All buoys are there except for the second red buoy (N18 42.889 W64 23.416).

New member here; Hector Davila from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Planning first visit to Anegada (07/06) after many visits to the BVI. Appreciate the info you have posted particularly about Anegada, here and in the BVIPirate website. I hope to be able to contribute in the future.

The first red buoy (as you travel from the channel entrance) is now missing, as well as the second red buoy.

Walker,

Do you know if there is anything left in the outer part of the channel, or is the inner green buoy the only one currently standing?

If this is the case, do you have any feel for the liklelihood of there being something to mark the outer channel being in place by early June (I have a selfish motive as we go down at that time).

Thanks,

Bob

The two channel entrance buoys are still there. The red one has been displaced a little bit toward the center of the channel, making the distance between it and the green can at the entrance a bit smaller.

Walker, If I'm reading correctly there are only three buoys at present....the green and red channel entrance one and the final green buoy I am to keep to port before turning to the mooring field. Does this sound correct? If so, once I enter the channel between the two red and green buoys what should my heading be as I head toward the second green buoy?

The heading from the entrance to the inner green buoy is 078 magnetic. However, you should be able to see the inner green buoy from the channel entrance. It will appear to be up the coastline, near end of the government dock, to the right of Setting Point.

Do not let yourself get set to the north by the wind. It is OK to get south of the channel - there is nothing but clear water for a few hundred yards after you get inside the channel and past the Two Sisters coral heads on the right. There is shallow water to the left of the channel about 2/3 of the way in - so stay to the right.

Thank you Walker. We're headed down Friday and should be to Anegada Wed. late morning. Too bad we'll miss you but look forward to meeting you one day during one of our travels.

Walker, since you are now on Anegada, any new updates on the channel markers, or is the last report still good? FYI, thanks so much for your Anegada guide on this website. While preparing for our next trip, next week, we discovered that all of our old info was missing. Thanks to you it is back in "the folder" .

The outer channel markers as mentioned were a bit closer together than I remember.
We were there July 2, 2008.

The furthest in big green bouy is there and several red and green along the channel, it was really a no-brainer, didn't even look at the GPS, we were too busy taunting the Lagoon 440 Claire that smoked on a race from north Sound!!

I am sitting at Neptune's right now looking at the channel markers. They are as stated in my Navigating to Anegada web page.

Outer red & green at the channel entrance, two intermediate reds along the channel, and an inner green at the end of the channel.
