    The buoy field is very narrow. With no wind there is turbulence and all ships turn differently. We had a collision with the neighbor at night.

    Das Bojenfeld ist sehr eng. Bei NO Wind kommt es zu Verwirbelungen und alle Schiffe drehen sich unterschiedlich. Wir hatten nachts eine Kollision mit dem Nachbarn.

    Practical mooring for clearance. Be careful where you put the anchor, in places there are rocks. Easy landing in the annex on the beach. Well protected anchorage in strong winds. The buoys are free during the day (convenient to go for clearance and then leave), paid for the night (30 USD, collected before dark). Frequent passage of ferries which brings waves and roll, but at night it is quiet. Clearance price: 10 USD / person for the environment + approx. USD 4.50 for the boat. Price clearance out: 0.75 USD. Unbeatable prices for BVI! (In Tortola, Road Town it is much more expensive, at least 60 USD). Good Wi-Fi plan: Moorings charter boats have free open Wi-Fi not very fast but without a password, you have to be near their boats.

    Mouillage pratique pour la clearance. Attention où vous mettez l'ancre, par endroits il y a des rochers. Débarquement facile en annexe sur la plage. Mouillage bien protégé en cas de vent fort. Les bouées sont gratuites la journée (pratique pour aller faire la clearance et partir ensuite), payantes pour la nuit (30 USD, collecté avant la tombée de la nuit). Passage fréquent des ferries qui apporte des vagues et du roulis, mais la nuit c'est tranquille. Prix de clearance in: 10 USD/personne pour l'environnement + env. USD 4,50 pour le bateau. Prix clearance out : 0,75 USD. Prix imbattables pour les BVI ! (À Tortola, Road Town c'est beaucoup plus cher, au moins 60 USD). Bon plan Wi-Fi: les bateaux de charter Moorings ont un Wi-Fi ouvert gratuit pas très rapide mais sans mot de passe, il faut être près de leurs bateaux.

    Very good for checking into the country, easy access to immigration by dinghy. The town is fine for some beers and basic provisioning.
