SVG coastguard service has come in for some high praises. In a correspondence to Commander Brenton Caine, Commander of the SVG Coast Guard, the fishing community of Rose Place through a letter from the Goodwill Fisherman’s Co-operative Limited has conveyed thanks to the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Coast Guard Service for their swift and effective response in assisting a member of that community, who experienced difficulty at sea on the western side of the Fort Charlotte Point.
The particulars relating to the incident revealed that on 22.11.18 about 1:45 p.m. a fisherman experienced distress at sea and after contacting the SVG Coast Guard base for assistance, the fisherman was rescued by a swift responding Coast Guard, whose officers were able to rescue and return him along with his boat safely to Rose Place.
