s/v Chrysalis Stuck In Nicaragua
Not sure of the details, saw this somewhat shoddy article about it.

Family worries about local sailing couple held in Nicaragua | Local & Regional | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News


SEATTLE -- A dream of a lifetime has taken a scary turn for a local couple.

Their adventure on the high seas has landed them in Nicaragua, and no one is sure when they'll be able to leave.

The Mount Vernon couple was sailing from Hondorus to Costa Rica when their adventure got derailed, and the family is desperate to find out what's going on. Dave and Leiann Scee are being held in Nicaragua, and they told their daughter they may have to "buy their way out."

"I'm just trying to keep myself calm. Maybe it was all a big misunderstanding," said Danielle Blagdon, Dave's daughter and Leiann's stepdaughter.

The Scees should be under sail on their way to Costa Rica, but in a hurried phone call Monday to her sister, Danielle learned they're being held in Nicaragua against their will.

bad news. leianne and dave are some awesome folks. they help folks as they go, local souls and schools. to have them detained for any reason is strange.
i hope they get out of this soon and get back underway.

Looks like everything is OK with them.....just a misunderstanding. I am anxious to know what that "misunderstanding" was? As I am all too familiar with this country.

Re: s/v Chrysalis Stuck In Nicaragua
it seems to come down to wrong port of entry,. the port they entered, corinto(sp) is commercial and no private boats.officials didnt know what to do with em, so they detained em.... the next port south is where they got a good welcome when they arrived and accepts cruisers..
