Wreck Bay Thieves

Just a heads up to other cruisers coming to Wreck Bay, San Cristobal:

I was paddling back (on my surfboard) from a surf near the achorage when I saw 2 local teenagers circle our cat with a rental type plastic canoe. At first I thought nothing off it, after circling it twice and looking though the port holes one of them boarded the boat and went inside (I had left the boat "open"). By now I was close and started shouting. The one on the canoe saw me, shouted at his mate who ran back outside, jumped into the canoe and paddled away furiously.

I was lucky, nothing was stolen. I think they watch the cruisers go ashore on the aqua taxi, then they go on your boat to steal. Just be aware of this.

Cheers
Gideon
