I have just updated the Navigating to Anegada web page with the Anegada channel marker status as of today (October 23, 2014).

There are a few changes:
  • The red outer marker is missing.
  • The red markers between the entrance and the end of the channel are both in place.
  • There is a new green marker on the north side of the channel before the end.
  • There is a red and green marker beyond the innermost green marker, marking the channel to the ferry dock.
  • There is a green marker and a red marker that mark the channel from the innermost green entrance channel marker into the anchorage off the Anegada Reef Hotel.

Current channel marker positions:
Red entrance buoyN18 42.784 W64 23.651 (missing as of October, 2014)
Green entrance buoyN18 42.836 W64 23.671 (light out of service as of October, 2014)

Interesting that there are new makers but the outer red is gone.
