The Atrium will make appointments for guests to get tested for trip home. Per Allison who I talked to at the Atrium. Testing will be done at the SBR.

26 minutes ago Planning an April trip [by BlackSeal]
Hi All,

We have a trip planned for 4 couples to bareboat in late April. Unfortunately we can't do a 10+ day trip and therefore quarantining under the current protocols and being able to sail for a reasonable period won't work.

What do you folks think the chances are that the government will relax quarantine protocols by the third week in April.

Thanks for your help and stay safe.

Mark

15 hours ago R&C Leopard v FP Heila 44' [by jphart]
We’re looking at a FP Helia charter charter from St Thomas versus a Moorings Leopards that we have chartered from a variety of Moorings bases that we are quite familiar with in the past.

Any Leopard charter folks who have also been on the Helias who might have a basis of comparison? Interested in your viewpoint of sailing characteristics, Lines at the helm, navigation aids, comfort level, electric panel, berths, and heads. Looks like lots of square interior edges, and obvious lack of walk-through access to the fore deck, as an example, How does the dinghy davit system compare? Or sugar scoops access in and out of the water? But I also see pluses such as water makers and expanded sun deck and seating on top.

That kind of information would be quite helpful and most appreciated.

thanks bunches

Yesterday at 08:45 PM Dump maybe? [by boucharda]
Looks like it's in the area of the dump. Pic from the road to Grand Case and from behind the lolo's. It looked like it was eventually settling in Anguilla...nice neighbors

..and on another note...What a difference a day (or two) makes. Wandered down Simpson Beach just now and both Mary's Boon and Karacter's are full and cranking. Everyone looked like they were enjoying themselves and there weren't many empty chairs...

Yesterday at 08:21 PM Day 0 and 1 [by caribbeangirl13]
We have arrived! Actually we got to the boat last night around 7:30. Entry protocols were easy peasy. From the plane they take you to the new building. Show your paperwork, use hand sanitizer like 80,000 times, get your temperature checked, get your COVID test, back to main terminal, go through immigration (each person needs their own form), go through customs, get your bracelet and then get in the cab. You show your entry approval letter a lot but nobody took ours. When we checked in for InterCaribbean we had to show COVID results and entry paperwork. Once we got to the marina, Rochelle met us at Moorings and let us know what boat we were on and gave us the menu to order dinner from Charlie’s. Provisions from Riteway were on board when we arrived but not our Caribbean Cellars order (the most important stuff!). Found out today that they are closed on Sunday but Abby from the Moorings pulled some strings and got someone to come in on their day off to deliver our stuff. Woohoo. Dinner from Charlie’s was delicious and we were able to get drinks delivered from them as well. Now off to Peter Island to await the results of yesterday’s test.

Yesterday at 08:15 PM RickG or anyone else who has visited the Culebra lighthouse [by Cleobeach]
Fingers crossed we are sailing next month. Packing light is a challenge for us but I am determined to go as light as possible this trip.

Walking up to the Culebra lighthouse - is it a teva/keens type of walk or should we take sneakers?

Yesterday at 06:38 PM Jean Henri [by bethandsteve]
We are happy to see our long time friend working back at Le String at Orient Beach. Jean spent many years at Le String before moving to Dreams and Rainbow.
His welcoming smile is good to see again on Orient. He introduced us to so many people on the beach that are great friends. He is one of the reasons we fell in love with the island over 20 years ago.

While SXM is not mentioned, it would likely not be too far behind.

If the above does not work, try the link below.
