If you have CYC, Maptech, or C-MAP charts, then be aware that the Anegada entrance channel as charted on these charts is incorrect. The channel shown on those charts is the entrance channel prior to 1992. In 1992, new channel markers were placed and the channel was set slightly farther to the southeast. Below is snippet from the chart as it should be showing the correct entrance channel.
The chart with the old incorrect entrance channel is shown below. Take serious note: the position of the green inner buoy (northernmost green buoy) as charted on the chart is actually at the shallowest spot in the Setting Point anchorage! The water at that position is only five feet deep.
The enlargement below shows
the area in the light red circle, with my Anegada
Approach Chart superimposed over it.
