CSSN News – February 9, 2020 – Crime against cruisers in St. Lucia


CSSN has updated a recent report concerning the theft of a 13FT center console dinghy/40HP outboard in Rodney Bay. The dinghy (damaged) was ultimately recovered, minus the outboard. The details are quite concerning. The victims have written a very detailed and insightful report about their experience.

The lack of any interest or effective police response remains sadly typical in St. Lucia. Local leadership and resources are required to address this persistent problem, which adversely impacts many sectors of the local economy (marine trades plus others) as well as the cruising community.

The question remains … will anyone step up, provide the necessary local leadership, define the processes and secure the resources to solve this problem in St. Lucia in a sustainable and permanent way?
