    We arrived Tuesday, March 2 at night, we did the PCR tests on Thursday morning and received the results and clearance papers on Friday afternoon. Great welcome from Jimmy and also from Nichole who manages the organization of the tests and regularizations of the papers Pleasant anchorage a little swell during the night.

    Mooring for quarantine. We had to wait 7 days for result instead of 72hrs. All well arranged by SVG Arrivals and Jimmy/Sparrow. Expensive services though. If you want to anchor, go west of the Cut and anchor in +/- 6-7m. Anchoring west of Young Island & Duvernette was very rolly. We went to Kingstown from here, at the street stop the minivan and EC$2 gets you there in 20mins. Supermarkets next to airport, same bus and same price but 10mins.

    We spent our 14 days of fortnight here (duration required since January 22): Fortnight conditions ok, we can swim and paddle around. Windy anchorage but the most easterly buoys do not roll. Sparrow or Jimmy greet the boats to help get on the buoy. They can take the trash during the fortnight for a few EC, and run errands with a list given to them but the commission is 80EC. On the other hand, very poor management of PCR tests: the delays to have the PCR test on site, then to obtain the results are random. The lab does not treat them in order at all, which leads to inconsistencies between boats. We had to stay 14 days (with uncertainties until the last moment) but other boats only stayed 5 days when they came from the same risk areas ... If you're lucky it's good , but otherwise it's quite annoying

    Nous avons passé nos 14 jours de quatorzaine ici (durée requise depuis le 22 janvier) : Conditions de quatorzaine ok, on peut nager et paddler dans les alentours. Mouillage venteux mais les bouée les plus à l'est ne roulent pas. Sparrow ou Jimmy accueillent les bateaux pour aider à se mettre sur bouée. Ils peuvent prendre les poubelles pendant la quatorzaine moyennant quelques EC, et faire des courses avec une liste qu'on leur donne mais la commission est à 80EC. Par contre très mauvaise gestion des tests PCR : les délais pour avoir le test PCR sur place, puis pour avoir les résultats sont aléatoires. Le labo ne les traite pas du tout dans l'ordre ce qui donne des incohérences entre bateaux. On a du rester 14 jours (avec des incertitudes jusqu'au dernier moment) mais d'autre bateaux ne sont restés que 5 jours alors qu'ils venaient des mêmes zones à risques... Si vous avez de la chance c'est bien, mais sinon c'est assez rageant
