Damms Cay closes to tourists

On Monday May 4, the Governor was granted permission to close Damms Cay to foreign visitors until at least the end of June. The Damms Cay harbor, Sandy Bight, the Dragover, and surrounding will be off limits to the normal population of cruising yachts. The island has four reported cases of Covid-19. The Governor is taking this extreme action to safeguard the aged residents of the Old Fisherman’s Resthome. Any yacht discovered to be violating this order will have her Temporary Import Certificate revoked, and thus must depart the territorial waters of the Southern Islands immediately.
