Cruisers sailing to Tobago are being advised that the last remaining cardinal marker alerting sailors to position of Buccoo Reef is now no longer in place.
John Stickland of Store Bay Marine Services, Tobago, says the cardinal marker at Pigeon Point, charted position 11.11.09N 060.51.12W has now disappeared. Charts generally indicate there are two cardinal bouys marking Buccoo Reef, both of these are now missing. There are currently no bouys or markers indicating the position or boundries of Bucco Reef; therefore extreme care should be taken when navigating in this area, especially at night.
