When you hit local waters, place a call over VHF Channel 16 and let them know of your pending arrival. Customs officials are not always on duty, and this allows you to contact them and let them know you're on your way. When you pull into port, make sure to have a list of your ship's stores, a crew and passenger list, and documentation from your last port of call on hand to turn over to customs. The customs official will then be responsible for approving your official entry to the islands. With your cruising permit in hand, you can then head to Middle Caicos.
After finding anchorage on Middle Caicos you'll be able to spend time exploring this quiet, natural island and making many more memories to go along with the ones you made during your sailing adventure.
