We've lived in the Turks and Caicos
for almost nine years now. It's a pretty small country, and having people fly in here to meet boats is pretty common. The customs
and immigration people you are dealing with will probably be familiar with your type of plans, but if you've got a day or so I'll ask and find out for you. I'm spending about half of each day at the local marina working on our boat, and can find out for sure by probably tomorrow afternoon at the latest. Maybe today, depends on who's hanging around.
Wish I had seen your question yesterday. Leaving the boat last night we chatted briefly with a couple Immigration officials who were sitting at South Side Marina having a rum
punch with Bob, the owner.
C&I come down to the marina every time a boat clears in or out or buys a cruising permit
. We see them often. I know the South African catamaran
next to us is planning to pull out some time today to head
to Luperon. So, If you can stand by for a bit, I'll get you an answer.
