COVID TESTING FROM NANNY CAY

Nanny Cay has provided the guidance below to charter operators. Please ensure that you follow it when reporting to Nanny Cay for your Day 4 COVID test, and be thankful to them and their staff for providing this service and assisting the industry for FREE:

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CAN I ASK THE FOLLOWING TO BE ADDED TO YOUR BRIEFING TO ALL YOUR CHARTER GUESTS. 

  • They need to have a yellow "Q" flag flying. 
  • Please show them the marina image attached. Please highlight that we have TWO entrances to our facility. 
  • Please highlight that it is DOCK M that they need to get too on the outer marina NOT THE INNER MARINA AS SO OFTEN HAPPENS. 
  • They need to look out for a 40 ft cream coloured shipping container on the shoreline and just north and east of that is the shaded, Regatta tent. THAT is the entrance. 
  • DO NOT arrive before 0800. There will be no one there to help with lines. 
  • Please have them call on VHF 16 on approach so we can tell them how to prepare their lines and fenders. 
  • Fenders need to be at the WATERLINE. 
  • Generally that outer marina is very breezy and it is easier to come in bow first, port side too as the wind will push them that way.
  • Nobody in quarantine should disembark from their vessel until directed to do so by Nanny Cay staff.
  • Taxi's have been leaving from 0830 on a first come first ride basis. 
  • THERE ARE NO BOOKING SLOTS OR APPOINTMENTS.  THIS WILL CHANGE FROM THE 25th March as they will need to book their own taxi or take them as they come available AT THEIR COST. 
  • They can receive deliveries from you or Riteway or any other supermarkets, providers etc. 
  • Remind them that they can get supplies from Riteway online for deliveries in the time frame that they are on the dock for the testing. 
  • PLEASE CONSULT AND GET PERMISSION FROM THE DOCK ATTENDANT ON DUTY FIRST before going anywhere near the vessels in quarantine. 
  • Please drop items on the deck and step away for distancing protocols. 
  • Nanny Cay Marina can only sell water ($10 to fill tanks)  and ice ($4 a bag ). WE CANNOT go running to the shops for last minute items. 
  • They can order breakfast from Peglegs   https://nannycay.com/restaurants/   they will need to pay by card on the phone. 
  • Fuel sales will be considered BUT GENERALLY NOT ALLOWED. 
  • They can carry their garbage up to our bins provided as they get into the taxi.
  • NO TECHNICIANS OF YOURS ALLOWED ONBOARD AT ANY TIME FOR REPAIRS DURING COVID TESTING. THEY WILL HAVE TO GO BACK TO YOUR DOCKS. 
  • When they are back from testing, we request they leave as soon as possible. 

Your attention to this would be most appreciated.
