Permission Denied to Enter Midway Harbor
SailBoat_Emergency

 

 

As quoted by The USFWS –
“These sailors are very happy that Midway is a working refuge. The on-board water maker of their ~35-foot vessel quit working but they followed published protocols for contacting Midway and were able to ask for help. Staff gathered water jugs and delivered them to the boat outside the lagoon. Biosecurity protocols dictate that un-permitted vessels should not be allowed access to the lagoon unless for an emergency.”
