  • We left our boat here unattended for about a week. Had no problems. --Istioploos 17:13, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Many French people have their boat here, some even stay here all year long. We came here to buy a new Genois for our boat. We felt very secure and never seen anything wrong. Most people are dressed in the occidental way. -- -- Stephane & Veronique Canada Icon.png Sailboat favicon.png Esploristo June 2016
