Several boats stranded on the island due to bad weather


Friday evening, a 25-meter sailboat ran aground on the Nettle Bay Beach Club beach with three people on board, two men and a woman. Of Venezuelan origin, they were helped to get off the boat, by the residents of the residence. The boat was anchored in Marigot Bay when it started to drift. The owner, who had left for the southern Caribbean, had asked friends (non-sailors) to watch him from time to time.

Mandated by the port establishment, an expert came to assess the situation during the day on Saturday. Fuel pumping operations began on Sunday morning to limit the risk of pollution.

With the owner's agreement, the vessel will be towed. Given the situation, the operation promises to be delicate.

During the weekend, another sailboat ran aground at Caye Verte, the passengers were rescued. On the night of Sunday to Monday, the D Boat also ran aground on the cliff at Simpson Bay.
