    Arrived here May 14th to quarantine and anchored off but we're told by Junior that we must pick up a buoy for US$10 (quarantine rates) contrary to Health Ministry guidelines , turns out that there is a difference of opinion between Fisheries/Tourism ministry and health ministry . But upshot is - if quarantining you must pick up a buoy , pay through Dockwra app. Moorings are good and new so no real problem. We arrived 7.30 am on Friday , went to health assessment at 9.30 then asked to return at 11.30 for PCR , results due Monday morning then if negative then cleared , but we do both have two vaccinations which we got in Antigua before coming here , otherwise I think minimum 7 days but if it takes a bit longer live with it, all the islands are struggling with minimum staff and resources , just keep reminding yourself how lucky we are to be here at all.

    We came here to quarantine to enter Grenada, as Tyrell Bay does not offer PCR testing on weekends or holidays. Despite that the Grenada yacht protocol for St George’s says to anchor here, an official came by to say anchoring is not allowed and we must pay to use a buoy. (The buoys at this location appear new and solid.) The locals are also not honoring the written Grenada yacht protocol, and instead of testing on day 4 after arriving which should include holidays, they are not offering testing until day 7 because they have a 4 day holiday; they do not honor their own rules. With minimal wind it is mildly rolly. Water is silty with minimal visibility.

    On the third day our anchor grabbed and we had to find a new place to cast it. You have to be vigilant.

    Al tercer día nuestro ancla garreó y tuvimos que buscar un nuevo lugar donde echarla. Hay que estar vigilante.
