Planning a trip shortly and plan to include a couple of days at Anegada. I have ordered the approach chart and that might actually answer my questions but I thought I would ask here anyway. If we anchor rather than pick up a mooring where in relation to the mooring field is the nicest or best place? We will only be drawing approximately 4' 11". I even made it easy with a map and circles and letters! Laughing

All three locations ("A", "B", and "C") are fine. Just leave enough swinging room. To avoid any worries, I would recommend going northwest of "B", to near where the catamaran is anchored off of Neptune's Treasure. The other boat that is anchored there in the photo is the "Argus III", Neptune's commercial fishing boat.

There are floating channel markers between the mooring field and the Neptune's anchorage.

Thank you very much. I was wondering how far west of the mooring field you can go before its a problem. From your reply and looking at the info I have, I guess you can go over there quite a ways. That should make for some better, uninterrupted sunsets! Little longer dingy ride but quieter too.

I look forward to receiving you chart.

When you get the chart, you will see that there is plenty of space there. I should have your chart in the mail to you on Monday.
