Chateaubelair, St Vincent — Earlier this month, a chartered catamaran anchored by itself in the northern part of Chateaubelair, St Vincent, well away from the two or three other cruising boats anchored in the bay, was boarded at night by swimmers, Caribbean Safety and Security Net (CSSN) reported.
The crew was “roughed up” and robbed of their wallets and passports.
The criminals took the dinghy to make their escape, and abandoned it ashore after removing the outboard motor.
A police report was made.
This is the second such incident reported this month.
