A French national pulled up anchored and sailed out of Vincentian water after being treated for injuries he sustained during a cutlass attack on board a yacht that was anchored in the Chateaubelair-Richmond area on Tuesday.

The injured man is Andri Khokhlou, captain of the yacht Kitrida.

Reports are that three men used a rowboat to enter his boat during the pre-dawn hours and Khokhlou injured during the ordeal.

An abandoned rowboat was later found in the water off the North Leeward town with a cutlass inside.

The visiting yacht man was treated at the Chateaubelair Hospital and released.

Police are investigating.

In March, Martin Griff, a 49-year-old accountant of Germany, died when unknown assailants attacked him aboard a yacht at Wallilabou, shooting him in the throat.

  1. I have been preaching about this issue for more than 30 years. I will advise the yacht’s people to stay away from SVG until the government address this horrendous crime issue.
