Saint Lucia, Soufriere: Night boarding and burglary – December 2014

Published 10 years ago, updated 5 years ago

We had an unfortunate incident in Soufriere on St Lucia, next to the Pitons on 8 December 2014.

We were on a mooring ball next to the bat caves near the town. Boat boys were plentiful, offering services to cruisers. We have always thought them to be helpful…and harmless. This morning we woke to find footprints all over our main salon. Luckily, we had left nothing in plain sight, so nothing was stolen, but we had clearly been boarded.

Our neighbors on the next mooring ball were not as lucky. The owner had left his wallet on the main salon table and $300 was stolen from it.

The moral of the story is that we should have locked ourselves into the boat when we went to bed ….. something we have never felt we needed to do before.
