A message from Captain Sam Pecota to the Cal Maritime community:

Based on the unfortunate incident suffered by the Training Ship Golden Bear while attempting to dock under pilotage in the port of Bridgetown, Barbados, I have had to make the decision to cancel our scheduled stay in Barbados while the crew undertakes repairs to our main mast. Once a temporary range light has been installed, and the USCG approves the repair, I expect the vessel to get underway and complete the remainder of Cruise 2019 as scheduled, with the next port of call Lisbon, Portugal.

I give you my assurance that the vessel is not severely damaged and will be perfectly capable of finishing the cruise safely. I will make every effort to make up for the lost port days in Barbados further down the line at the other ports. Once the vessel is underway again, I will provide an update on vessel status and any necessary modifications to the cruise schedule.

Lost port days in Barbados?

Tomorrow is another day filled with cold Banks Beer, crystal clear SCUBA, and some respectable sport fishing.
