    Mooring a bit rolling but very sheltered from the wind. The buoys are a little expensive (40 EC) but we must help the country to recover. Very friendly welcome and beautiful excursions. One of the most beautiful islands in the West Indies.

    Mouillage un peu rouleur mais très abrité du vent. Les bouées sont un peu chères (40 EC) mais il faut bien aider le pays pour qu’il se redresse. Accueil très sympathique et excursions magnifiques. Une des plus belles îles des Antilles.

    Better stay away and go north to Portsmouth. We immediately got “welcomed” by one of the Sea Cat boatboys, approaching us in a very rude way, telling us that anchoring would be forbidden in the entire bay and that we had to take a buoy. “If you want to anchor, piss off here and go to Portsmouth.” What we then did. We had a great time in Portsmouth, where we met several sailors living in the Caribbean quite some time and all avoiding Rousseau. They also warned us of the moorings in Rousseau, as there had been issues with drifting boats/broken moorings in the past.

    The anchorage itself is not very beautiful: we are in the suburbs of Roseau, the water is relatively dirty and the anchor anchorage is almost impossible (given the funds and activism of the boat boys). It is therefore mooring on buoy at 40EC per night mandatory. Where this anchorage has an attraction, it is to be the starting point of one or more excursions in the national parks east of Roseau. We had a day with a guide (Jo, connected by Seacat) with Middleham Fall, Tito Gorge, Trafalgar Falls and some other detours: fabulous!

    Le mouillage en lui-même n’est pas très beau: on est dans les faubourgs de Roseau, l’eau est relativement sale et le mouillage sur ancre n’est quasiment pas possible (compte tenu des fonds et de l’activisme des boat boys). C’est donc mouillage sur bouée à 40EC par nuit obligatoire. Là où ce mouillage a un attrait, c’est pour être le point de départ d’une ou plusieurs excursions dans les parcs nationaux à l’Est de Roseau. Nous avons fait une journée avec un guide (Jo, mis en relation par Seacat) avec Middleham fall, Titou Gorge, Trafalgar Falls et quelques autres détours : fabuleux !
