Security alert: turn
sunset. We aimed in the same direction and reboarded, ed a relief to be back on home territory, away from people.
That night, feasting on fish, by moonlight, I realised that the great attraction of chartering a yacht is that you’re free to do as you please.
It’s easy to while away the days swimming and snorkelling and there’s no
great need to cov cover huge distances or even go ashore and see the sights.
If you’re feeling energetic energetic, then th you can take one of the canoes to paddle roundthebays,ortryyourhandatwater skiing.
I ended up bouncing over the waves in a rubber doughnut, pulled by speedboat, a delightfully silly activity, and I couldn’t stop laughing.
This is as good as it gets.
TIGHT AIRPORT security is notorious for causing delays, but it has just got a whole lot worse, for US-bound travellers. Extra stringent measures are in place following a new bomb threat from terror groups.
Mobile phones (and other electronic devices) must be charged and turned on. If it won’t turn on, passengers will be asked to charge it and be screened again to confirm that it is a working device and that its batteries are not hidden explosives.
British Airways have taken an even tougher stance and say passengers whose devices cannot be turned on will be immediately turned away.
Anyone heading for destinations that fly close to, US airspace — including Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver in Canada, and Mexico — can expect even tighter checks.
This is bound to compound confusion among passengers about what can be taken through security. Restrictions have been in force since 2007 yet tens of thousands of litres of liquids and gels and other items are still being confiscated at airports.
Advice: charge your phones, keep them on and follow our guide for stress free passage through security. Q: Can I take a drink through A: No, not even if you are sipping it at the time. Q: Can liquids be taken through? A: You can take through various liquids in different containers, but the container itself should not be able to hold more than 100ml. These should be carried through the airport in a single transparent re-sealable plastic bag, such as a freezer bag. All containers should fit comfortably and the bag should be sealed. Inside, there should be no more than 10 containers of 100ml, bringing the combined volume to no more than 1 litre. Only one bag per person is allowed. Q: Okay, but what is a liquid? Is my mascara a liquid? A: Masacara and other make-up items such as foundation, are considered liquids. So are creams, lotions, oils and perfumes. Toiletries such as sprays and pressurised containers including shaving foam and spray deodorants, all types of pastes, including toothpaste, shower gel are all to be treated as liquids. If in doubt, treat it as a liquid. If it’s more than 100ml, pack it. Or buy it once you have passed through security. Q: What about my medicines? A: You can take as much as you need. But you will need a doctor’s note. Q: What about baby food? A: You can take as much liquid baby food or sterilised water needed for the journey. You will be asked to taste it. Q: Can I take nail scissors and tweezers in my hand luggage? A: No, these items will be confiscated without question. Pack them.
