The CSSN report on their website:

  • 2 burglaries of unoccupied boats (owners off island), Witches Tit, French side lagoon, during the last 7 -10 days;
  • 4 dinghy thefts, locations not clear, also not clear if locked, but seem to be from docks (including marinas) vs alongside boats;
  • 3 attempted thefts, night time (borders deterred/scared off) locations not specified, but French and Dutch sides mentioned;
  • 1 burglary, multiple electronics stolen from locked boat, daytime, location not specified, maybe Witches Tit.

 

It is not known if any reports have been made to authorities, but it seems unlikely that any effective actions have been taken, as these types of events continue to occur at an alarming and increasing rate, at many locations.

If you plan to visit St. Martin (either side, marina, lagoon or outside) please take appropriate precautions and secure your dinghy and boat at all times in all locations. Please be sure to report all incidents to CSSN as well as on the local VHF net.

CSSN relies on the cruising community to report events as they occur, our goal is to provide accurate and timely information to the Caribbean wide cruising community – please contact us with details!
