The Royal Bermuda Regiment Coastguard came to the aid of passengers of a disabled charter boat this week to ensure they were able to catch a flight.

According to an incident report, Bermuda Radio received a call at about 11.42am on Wednesday from a 31ft charter boat that encountered difficulties near Eastern Blue Cut with 14 people on board.

“The disabled vessel was in no immediate distress but had concerns about getting their charter ashore as they had flights booked to depart Bermuda in the afternoon,” the report said.

“Bermuda Radio tasked the Bermuda Coastguard with taxiing the 13 passengers ashore.

“While the Coastguard were assisting the passengers, Bermuda Radio was able to contact another water sports facility, KS Watersports, and request their assistance towing the disabled craft back to her berth. KS Watersports were happy to assist and towed the vessel back ashore.”
