    Ramsalt | Sailboat ~ 12 m

    We anchored here for a couple of weeks, great place to do boat work as there is no waves or wind. Had to leave before 1. June as after this it would be only allowed to anchor with an active hurricane warning in effect and max three days before. There are a few permanent boats that seem to be residents of this hurricane hole and which must have special allowance. Did experience a bit of dragging through the loose silt, but when the anchor set it set really good and hard to recover. Supposedly the bottom is criss crossed with lost anchor chains and also there a many wrecka along the mangroves. Mosquitos like to say hello in the evening.

    This anchorage is not authorized outside of cyclonic periods, it is a cyclone hole.

    Ce mouillage n'est pas autorisé hors des périodes cycloniques, c'est un trou à cyclone.

    Mooring on a background of random vase! Skidded 2 days after planting a Spade that had never failed! Too bad, the place is quiet while being close to the amenities of Marin.

    Mouillage sur fond de vase aléatoire ! Avons dérapé 2 jours après avoir planté une Spade qui n’avait jamais failli ! Dommage, l’endroit est calme tout en étant à proximité des commodites du Marin.
