Ch. de La Baume-BEP Foundation replacing old lines and buoys To replace and maintain moorings is a challenge. You need to have calm water, nice weather, low tide (if possible) and available volunteers ! All these conditions need to be in place in order to make it. So far, buoys’s replacements took place in the Abacos to Sandy Cay, Fowl Cay and Marmaid between April, May and June.
