 St Lucia - Profile

Facts

  • Saint Lucia is part of the Windward Islands and a good base from which to explore the rest of the Lesser Antilles.
  • Cruising attractions include excellent facilities at Rodney Bay Marina in the north and in the well-protected port of the capital Castries, the scenic anchorage of Soufrière Bay overlooked by The Grand and Petit Pitons and the delightful, yet crowded, landlocked harbour of Marigot Bay.
  • The government has actively encouraged the establishment of yachting related businesses, aiming to make Saint Lucia one of the prime yachting centres in the Caribbean.
  • Getting work done here: Rodney Bay has a well-service boatyard. Good electrical, mechanical and electronic contractors, several of whom work as service agents for major manufacturers. Note that the Christmas period is a busy time with plenty of public holidays, so it's advisable to schedule work outside of this time.
  • Provisioning: Reasonable value for money. Many imported US products. Fresh produce markets in main towns and supermarkets near all ports.

Security

Although boardings and theft from yachts in the Caribbean is not unusual, Saint Lucia does suffer its fair share of incidents. Check the Noonsite Piracy Pages for latest reports received.

Cruisers should take basic safety precautions and use common sense when leaving the boat or going ashore at night. This includes LOCKING YOUR BOAT - securing all hatches and doors and stowing anything of value out of sight (in particular loose deck items of value). Keep a record of serial numbers/photos stored in a secure place for purposes of investigation and proof of ownership should a theft occur. Cruisers have reported purse snatching attempts in broad daylight in the past.

There were 4 incidents of theft and attempted theft reported to CSSN in 2016, both inside and outside the lagoon in Marigot Bay.

If heading to Soufriere to see the Pitons and Bat Caves, note that night boardings and burglaries have been reported here in the past, and sadly do continue with boats being broken into in 2017 (and incredibly boats being burgled that have been left vacant and unlocked!). Lock up well at night or if going ashore and it's strongly recommended to employ a watchman if leaving the boat unattended.

Also in Soufriere, in March 2016, cruisers were 'mugged' at the Hummingbird Resort dock when returning back from dinner to board their dinghy to go back to the boat. See this report for details.

Daytime burglaries were reported in 2011 and in 2012 by cruisers leaving their boats at anchor in Vieux Fort while travelling to the airport to check-in with immigration and/or collect guests from arriving flights. It is recommended that a crew member be left onboard at all times. Sadly, a British cruiser was killed defending his wife against armed boarders in Vieux Fort in January 2014. See report.

This news report indicates that efforts are being made by the Saint Lucia Police Force to improve security for yachts on the west coast.

Dinghy thieves operate throughout the Caribbean and on this Island are particularly active in the Reduit Beach area, Rodney Bay. Best advice is to place your dinghy on deck and chain it overnight.

The Caribbean Safety and Security Net (safetyandsecuritynet@gmail.com) provides information by anchorage or by island, so sailors can plan their cruising in the Caribbean with an eye to appropriate behaviour and precautions wherever they decide to go. Should you have suffered a boarding, robbery or attack on your yacht or have information about a yachting-related security incident, go to the CSSN homepage and click on the "Report an Incident" icon. The associated form is quick and simple to complete and ensures that all the necessary details are reported. The CSSN is the most comprehensive source of Caribbean security incidents against sailors. Remember, it is every cruiser's responsibility to ensure that incidents are reported. Also cruisers can subscribe to e-mail alerts, follow on facebook and twitter and listen to the SSB Voice Service.

The Caribbean Security Index (CSI) is a a tool to assist cruisers in assessing the probability of crime at ports and anchorages throughout the Caribbean. The CSI provides a means of assessing risk in a given area.

Last updated March 2017.

Weather

The island has constant trade winds with only minor differences through the year. December to June is the best time of year, when it is less humid, and there is no risk of hurricanes. The hurricane season is from June to November.

If you ever need a vet when visiting St. Lucia, we highly recommend Dr Scotland in his clinic as he knows what he is doing. He is helping our little dog who is struggling for his life after being bitten by a bigger dog and getting stitched up with fishing line by the first vet we went to. The first vet charged us a lot of money and did not do a professional job.
