Arnaud Maldague

Maldague Expelled from the Cayman Islands!

Date: February 24, 2020
Approximate GPS Location: (19.28°N, 81.37°W)

After an exhausting 36-hours trying to salvage what he could of his mast, Maldague was back on Grand Cayman with a tough decision ahead of him. Try to repair his boat or cut his losses and buy something newer?

In his latest update, a decision has been made. He is changing boats, unpacking the “crazy amount of gear” he accumulated on the badly damaged Ægir sailboat and moving it to his new vessel.

Dramatically, he has also announced that he’s being “expelled” from the Cayman Islands. Perhaps he has overstayed his visa? For now, we are left to guess.

Maldague promises more information soon…
