POSSIBLE NAVIGATION HAZARD REPORTED ON APPROACH TO JOLLY HARBOUR MARINA ENTRANCE
Sunday 12th February 2012

The Caribbean Safety and Security Net has advised of a potential hazard on the approach to the Jolly Harbour Marina entrance.

During the evening of 26 January, S/V Sugar and Spice sank on the approach to Jolly Harbor Marina, Antigua. At the time of the sinking, part of the mast was still above water at 17 degrees 04.97 minutes north and 61 degrees 57.69 minutes west, or about three nautical miles from the channel markers into Jolly Harbor. The director of Antigua and Barbuda Search and Rescue confirmed that all aboard were rescued by a passing vessel and that the Antigua and Barbuda Coast Guard, upon investigation, can find no trace of the yacht above water. The assumption is that she shifted sufficiently to bring the mast below the waterline. Nevertheless, yachts are cautioned to avoid the waypoint by several hundred yards in case the mast and rigging are just below the waterline, and to keep a close watch for floating debris.
