Country Name: St. Lucia

Location Detail: Vieux Fort

EVENT: Burglary


Stolen Items: Cash, kayak, other items TBD



A charter company catamaran with 3 charter company employees onboard anchored, then locked the boat and went windsurfing.

When they returned several hours later they found the locked sliding door had been compromised and the interior ransacked. Cash had been stolen and given the chaos it was not possible for the 3 charter employees to determine if other items may have been taken.

A kayak (not locked) on the forward deck was also stolen.

A report was made to the Coast Guard.
