EVENT: Theft
Stolen Items: Food, food containers and beverages from outside refrigerator were stolen. Someone had to board the boat when we went into the Tamarind hotel for dinner just after sunset or when we entered the Wine shop. Some food was eaten and the empty containers put back in the fridge and the majority of other items were taken. We were anchored where the boat could be seen from the restaurant, so it had to have happened right at sundown or when we went in store because we could see the boat the majority of the time. Luckily the rest of the boat was locked and no other large items outside were taken (scuba tank or fishing pole)
SECURED: Locked
DETAILS: While owners ashore for dinner at the Tamarind Beach Hotel, their catamaran was boarded and the outside refrigerator was emptied of foods/drinks. Incident reported by phone to the hotel, who indicated they would alert the Coast Guard.

Country Name: SVG
Location Detail: Canouan Charlestown Bay (Tamarind Hotel)
EVENT: Theft
Stolen Items: blue floatation 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. CSSN NOTE: 2 prior incidents dated 12-30-2012 and 4-25-2015 have been added to the database.
