The Border Security teams would like to thank the members of the Anguillian Public for their vigilance at this time in monitoring the seas around Anguilla and reporting the sightings of vessels to the Royal Anguilla Police Force.
Yesterday 08 April, in the late afternoon a number of yachts were seen sailing eastward in the waters between St Martin and Anguilla. The Security boat responded as well as shore based teams in support to contain any possible landing. The yachts had left Sint Maarten and were on passage to Portugal. They were monitored until clear of Anguilla territorial waters and for some time afterwards .
