CSSN News – February 25, 2023 – ALERTS 2889/2991 UPDATED/REMOVED

CSSN News     CSSN has agreed to a request by the victims to REMOVE their submitted firsthand report (never published), and as a consequence our previously published PRELIMINARY 2nd hand report CSSN ALERT!  2991, Robbery -West End Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras.

CSSN ALERT!  2889, Theft (same location) has been UPDATED to correct details (date, police report made) and newly reflect its firsthand status. Originally, these 2 secondhand reports were not known to be related.

Because of the serious nature of some reports, an overriding concern for the immediate safety of the cruising community may at times necessitate PRELIMINARY reports. We strive to make our reports as complete, accurate and timely as possible, and can only do so with the help of victims and the community. The all volunteer CSSN team appreciates the patience and understanding of the cruising community as incidents are submitted and then vetted/finalized.

CSSN wants to remind everyone of the importance of timely firsthand reports, and also thank those who made good faith secondhand reports. We have made reporting easy, with a quick/easy online form. Every report we receive is acknowledged (usually by email). If you are a victim, make a timely report. If you encounter a victim, encourage and support a firsthand report – we have a shared responsibility to keep our community well informed.

2957 – 2022-11-16 – Honduras – Offshore04 – Suspicious Activity


CSSN Report
CSSN First Hand Report

DATE: 2022-11-16 22:45
LOCATION: Honduras – Offshore04
EVENT: Suspicious Activity
SECURED: Does not apply
DETAILS: A 47′ catamaran with two (2) persons on board departed Shelter Bay marina, Panama for Punta Gorda, Belize. Moving at about 8 knots, at 2245HRS they detected a boat two (2) nm in their forward path on radar. Their position was 16° 08.560 N, 082° 05.140 W, approx. 95 nautical miles off the coast of Honduras.

The captain determined there were 2 fishing boats, one heading directly (bow to bow) at the catamaran. Course was altered, and the enclosed fishing boat (est. 12m) also altered course and continued its direct approach. Course was again altered and 2nd engine added and the yacht went dark. A second similar fishing boat was noted, also heading for the yacht. The first fishing boat had closed to within 60 feet on the port beam. With the addition of the second engine and a favorable wind angle the catamaran was moving at 12 knots, and the fishing boats were unable to keep pace but followed on the altered course for an additional 30 minutes. There were no radio communications.

The catamaran continued without further incident to Belize, and made an informal report to authorities on arrival.
