    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

    Quarantine mooring on buoy. After registering on the internet, Jimmy came to help us put the buoy on. We left for 5 days of quarantine before taking another test. (We had done one in Martinique before coming. Cost 20 € or 20 $ per night. Strong current depending on the day but does not prevent swimming. Watch out for children anyway. No boatboy, quarantine is respected not all. Second passage here but we are heading back to Saint Lucia so we are not in the quarantine zone which has been busy since our last visit with 30 boats, anchored in the west on a sandy bottom dotted with corals.

    Mouillage de quarantaine sur bouée. Après avoir fait une inscription sur internet, Jimmy est venu nous aider à mettre la bouée. C’est parti pour 5 jours de quarantaine avant de refaire un test. (Nous en avions fait un en Martinique avant de venir. Coût 20€ ou 20$ la nuit. Fort courant en fonction de la journée mais n’empêche pas de nager. Attention aux enfants quand même. Pas de boatboy, la quarantaine est respectée pas tous. Deuxième passage ici mais nous remontons vers sainte Lucie donc nous ne sommes pas en zone de quarantaine qui c’est chargée depuis notre dernier passage avec 30 bateaux, mouillage à l’ouest sur fond de sable parsemé de coraux.
