Country Name: SVG
Location Detail: Canouan Charlestown Bay (Tamarind Hotel)
EVENT: Theft
Stolen Items: blue flotation jacket, flip flops, bag of clothes pegs
SECURED: Locked
DETAILS: The dinghy was raised and because of 2 previous boardings on the same island I also remove the dinghy bung and safety dongle so that starting of the dinghy would be difficult. I had left a floatation jacket over the lifeline for drying – totally forgot about this item. The clothes pegs are always left out because who would want to steal them?? My flip flops were left in the raised dinghy as they always are and will be. Someone came on board during the night and stole the jacket, bag of clothes pegs and flip flops without making any noticeable noise as they have done before on one of the 2 occasions in the past. First sign of boarding was that the lock saloon door was at a slight angle. No police report was made.
