    Report from CSSN
    On a mooring just north of the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour entrance, among about 10 other yachts, owners awoke to discover that they had been boarded overnight. Their flag pole had been broken, as well as the sat phone antenna and MOB light/pole. Their in-the-water, but chained dinghy, apparently the target of thieves, remained secured. The owners reported the attempted theft and damage to the paid mooring minder the next morning.

    Reported by D. Conway:

    On the morning of March 7th we awoke to find our dinghy contents (including oars, fuel tank, air pump, seat, engine cover and a pair of sandals) were all missing. The engine had been left by us in the lowered position overnight, yet now was raised and tied up in the raised position. This occurred as we were on an outside mooring at the Bitter End on Virgin Gorda, BVI.

    I do generally raise my dinghy in the evenings, however as the winds were very high I chose to do otherwise as the dinghy could have turned over in those high winds.

    I was interested in posting my loss so as to let others know something to watch out for. I have been in the BVIs since November and this is the only loss to date. It was especially surprising as it was during a windy night in front of the Bitter End Yacht Club. I have no idea if it was a drunken sailor or someone local. I did report the loss to the local authorities.
