Bermuda Maritime Operations have been assisting Canadian and US authorities with broadcast inquiries at sea after a sailboat that left Bermuda for Nova Scotia on May 16 prompted concerns.

A staff member at BMO said the sailboat Strange Situation had not been heard from.

According to CBC News, the vessel had been expected on Wednesday at the port of Lunenberg.

BMO has been broadcasting to shipping and mariners who may have passed the sailboat’s path to see if any have spotted the 50ft sloop, reported to have three people on board.

“Technically it is not considered overdue just yet,” the staff member said yesterday. “But it has not been heard from and people are starting to ask questions and show some concern.

“As things stand, he has left here and is probably expected at the destination port tomorrow or the day after.”

Inquiries were continuing as of 6.30pm.
