Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] BVI Fines for sailing I n BVI waters
I have just learned of at least two cruising boats who were sttraying through BVI waters (with no intention of landing) who were stopped by BVI coast guard boats, escorted to a BVI port, and held in quarantine while charges were filed and $20,000 fines levied. These boats were apparently detained until payment made. All in response to Covid laws prohibiting foreign vessels from entering.
