Sailboat Catches Fire North of St. John, USVI

Sailboat fire north of St. John USVI

On Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 at around 10:00am, a sailboat caught fire just off the northwest coast of St. John, US Virgin Islands.

The crew escaped safely and numerous other boats in the immediate vicinity were able to offer assistance.

I took these photos from our charter yacht at Maho Bay. The vessel burned for nearly two hours but apparently did not sink.
