#AceNewsReport – Jan.20: These successful interdictions were possible thanks to excellent coordination and collaboration between the Coast Guard and our local and federal partners within the Caribbean Border Interagency Group, together, we stand ready and respond daily to protect our nation’s maritime border from illegal voyages and other existing threats,” said Cmdr. Beau Powers, Sector San Juan chief of response. “To anyone thinking of taking part in an illegal voyage, we urge you not to take to the sea! Your life and the life of everyone else taking part in the voyage will be in great danger. The sea-state conditions of the Mona Passage are dangerous and quite unpredictable, especially for these grossly overloaded makeshift vessels that most often are unseaworthy and have no lifesaving equipment onboard.”

“The execution of this search and rescue case was superb and ended up saving four souls that were lost at sea,” Chief Petty Officer Luis Cabrera, Coast Guard Boat Forces St. Thomas chief supervisor.  “Despite the darkness of the night, our Boat Forces crew was able to execute various search patterns and locate the vessel in distress.  We appreciate and thank British Virgin Islands authorities for their collaboration taking over the tow of the vessel and bringing the boaters to safety in Tortola.”

Coast Guard watchstanders in Sector San Juan received a call at 3:41 p.m. Tuesday from a Virgin Islands Search and Rescue operator, who relayed a report received from a Good Samaritan reporting the distress.  The Good Samaritan further informed of a WhatsApp communication notifying a general location of the distress, approximately 15 nautical miles south of the British Virgin Islands.

Watchstanders diverted a Coast Guard HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft and directed the launch of a 33-Special Purpose Craft from Boat Forces St. Thomas to search.  They also transmitted an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast advising maritime traffic in the area to be on the lookout.  At approximately 7:06 pm Tuesday, watchstanders received a VHF Channel-16 communication from the sailing vessel Pilar reporting the coordinates of a flare sighting observed within the search area.  

The Coast Guard boat crew diverted to investigate and shortly thereafter came upon the Water Baby with its four passengers safely aboard.  The rescued boaters were exhausted, hungry and thirsty, but otherwise appeared to be in good health.  While communicating with the Coast Guard crew, the rescued boaters confirmed being adrift for three days, sending the WhatsAPP communication and firing a flare.

The Coast Guard boat crew took the Water Baby in tow and rendezvoused with the crew of a British Virgin Islands Customs vessel, who continued the tow of the Water Baby and the transport of the boaters to safe haven in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Channel 16 is the international distress frequency and is received worldwide by any VHF radio. It is used for distress and emergency calls as well as for informational broadcasts from the Coast Guard.

The RB-S crew arrived on scene, but was unable to reach the vessel due to the water depth and kept visual on the boaters until the Dolphin crew arrived. 

The Dolphin crew arrived on scene, recovered two of the boaters and left the remaining boater due to weight limitations on the aircraft. A rescue swimmer was left with the RB-S crew near the boat. After dropping off the first two boaters, the Dolphin crew returned and picked up the remaining boater and rescue swimmer.

The boaters were transported to awaiting family members at Air Station Houston.

No injuries were reported.

“Cases like this really show the importance of having some type of emergency communication device whether it’s a VHF-FM radio or an emergency position indicating radio beacon, it’s important to be prepared for unexpected situations when out on the water,” said Lt. j.g Tiana Lewter, Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston command duty officer. “Thankfully, due to the call from the worried father and the rapid response from our Coast Guard units, we were able to get the three boaters back to their families.”

(WASHINGTON) LATEST: U.S. Sends two patrol boats to beef up the Ukrainian navy amid escalating tensions between Kiev and Moscow over accusations of Russian military buildup near Ukraine and in the Black Sea region #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.22: The US-flagged general cargo ship Ocean Grand, carrying the two Island-class patrol boats, had departed Baltimore for the Ukrainian port of Odessa on November 8 as part of a $2.5 billion security package that was promised after the Crimean Peninsula reunited with Russia in 2014.

#AceDailyNews PressTV News Report: Ukraine Media reports said an American cargo ship, carrying two refitted former US Coast Guard patrol boats, transited the Dardanelles strait in northwestern Turkey on Saturday.

Sunday, 21 November 2021 10:29 AM  [ Last Update: Sunday, 21 November 2021 10:29 AM ]

US Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) (L) talks with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a rally with fellow Democrats before voting on H.R. 1, or the People Act, on the East Steps of the US Capitol on March 08, 2019 in Washington, DC. (AFP photo)

Reuters reported that Ukrainian sailors have already undergone extensive training on the vessels in the United States and that Kiev received two similar vessels in 2019.

The US State Department earlier in the year approved the potential sale to Ukraine of up to 16 Mark VI patrol boats and equipment for an estimated $600 million.

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the West on Thursday of escalating the situation in Ukraine by providing Kiev with “lethal modern weapons” and holding drills in the Black Sea region.

Putin: West escalating situation in Ukraine, providing Kiev with lethal weapons

Putin: West escalating situation in Ukraine, providing Kiev with lethal weaponsRussian President Vladimir Putin accuses the West of escalating the situation in Ukraine by providing Kiev with “lethal modern weapons” and holding drills in the Black Sea region.

The Russian leader said Moscow has been “constantly” raising concerns about the US naval exercises in the strategic region, but the West is taking Russia’s warnings lightly.

Ukraine has claimed there are nearly 100,000 Russian soldiers near its border, and the United States has issued warnings over a possible attack by Russia.

Moscow categorically has rejected the possibility of an attack, saying Washington is involved in aggressive moves in the Black Sea, where Ukraine and the United States held military drills during the weekend.

The Russian Defense Ministry said last week that the US is setting up a multinational group of armed forces close to Russia’s eastern border in the Black Sea region.

The ministry said the US Navy’s guided-missile destroyer Porter, tanker vessel John Lenthall, and command ship Mount Whitney were deployed to the Black Sea to take part in multinational drills conducted by the US European Command.

The Russian president harshly denounced the “provocative” move and said unscheduled NATO drills in the strategic Black Sea region posed a serious challenge for Moscow.

Russia accuses US military of ‘aggressive moves’ in Black Sea

Russia accuses US military of ‘aggressive moves’ in Black SeaThe Russian Defense Ministry said the recent US military actions in the Black Sea were “aggressive,” and “posed a threat to regional and strategic stability.”

President Putin and other top Russian officials have already warned the expansion of NATO activities near Russia’s borders is a “red line” for Moscow. 

NATO has expressed determination to reinforce the security of member states close to Russia following what it claims to be Moscow’s “annexation” of Crimea and its backing for pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Relations between Moscow and Kiev have been strained since the conflict erupted in Ukraine’s eastern region of Donbass between Ukrainian government forces and ethnic Russians in 2014.

The US, the European Union, and Ukraine claim that Russia has a hand in the conflict. Moscow strongly rejects the allegation. The Black Sea peninsula of Crimea voted in a referendum to fall under Russian sovereignty that year and more than 90 percent of the participants in the plebiscite voted in favor of unification.

(ASTORIA, Ore.) USCG REPORT: The Coast Guard rescued five people from a life raft late Monday after a fishing boat sank approximately 20 miles offshore from the mouth of the Umpqua River #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.17: Rescue helicopter crews from the Coast Guard air facility in Newport and the Coast Guard air station in North Bend, and 47-foor Motor Lifeboat rescue boatcrews from Coast Guard Stations Siuslaw River and Umpqua River deployed to help the people in distress.

#AceDailyNews Coast Guard Report: The captain aboard the 67-foot fishing vessel Desire, homeported in Neah Bay, Washington, used a VHF-FM marine-band radio to hail Coast Guard Sector North Bend watchstanders at about 9 p.m. Monday and report their vessel was taking on water. He also reported the five people aboard were preparing to abandon ship into a life raft.

Coast Guard saves 5 after fishing boat sinks off Oregon coast

Additionally, Desire’s registered emergency position indicating radio beacon was activated by contact with water and the vessel’s location and owner information was transmitted to Coast Guard watchstanders at the 13th District Command Center in Seattle.

Once on scene at about 9:30 p.m., the helicopter crews located the survivors in the life raft and deployed rescue swimmers to facilitate hoisting the survivors.

The helicopter crew from Newport rescued three survivors, and the helicopter crew from North Bend rescued two survivors. The station’s boatcrews remained on scene to assist as needed.

“The fishing boat’s crew all had survival suits, properly deployed their survival raft, and shot two flares to assist us in locating them,” said Lt. Conor Regan, a helicopter pilot from Coast Guard Air Station North Bend. “Their overall preparation serves as an example for other mariners, as it was fundamental to the positive outcome of their potentially life-threatening situation.”

Additionally, Regan added that the EPIRB’s transmission of information allowed watchstanders to corroborate details of the choppy radio distress hail and expedite rescue coordination.

Following the successful hoists of all five people from the life raft, the survivors were taken to Air Station North Bend where their care was transferred to awaiting emergency services personnel.

There are no serious injuries reported.

#AceDailyNews US Coast Guard Report: Off the coast of Federated States of Micronesia, six people survived at sea and were found Thursday on a 24-foot skiff located 40 miles southeast of the Mortlock Islands after an eight-day search involving the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Navy, Federated States of Micronesia first responders, Caroline Islands first responders, and local good Samaritans.

In the above photo, a person awaits rescue in a life raft approximately 13 nautical miles west of Cape Ommaney, Alaska, November 10, 2021. The Coast Guard rescued the crew of four people after their vessel sank.

All three cases highlight the importance of mariners properly equipping and training for survival at sea, as well as the value of government and industry partnerships.

The crew of a good Samaritan vessel, Nord Rubicon, rescued seven fishermen in a life raft 350 miles off the coast of Monterey, California, Wednesday after their 85-foot commercial fishing boat caught fire and became engulfed in flames. Multiple emergency position indicating radio beacon and personal locator beacon alerts immediately notified U.S. Coast Guard crews the vessel was in peril. Coast Guard watchstanders used the Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System to request help from nearby ships. The Nord Rubicon crew, located just 80 miles away, diverted from their course, retrieved the fishermen and took them safely to shore. Video is available here.

Wednesday, Coast Guard aircrews in Alaska rescued four fishermen after they abandoned their 53-foot fishing boat sinking 13 miles west of Cape Ommaney, Alaska. The Coast Guard Sector Juneau command duty officer for the rescue, Nicholas Meyer, credits their survival to their proper use of an EPIRB, VHF radio, survival suits, life raft and training.

“The safeguarding of lives at sea, particularly along our coastal waters and in support of our closest international partners, continues to be our highest priority,” said Vice Adm. Michael F. McAllister, commander Coast Guard Pacific Area. “This week’s impressive rescues demonstrate our resolve to be Semper Paratus – Always Ready. Thanks to the valuable relationships we’ve built with partner agencies, the valuable contributions of good Samaritans, and the focus these mariners had on ensuring they were ready for emergencies at sea, 17 people are alive today who may not otherwise be. This was a fitting tribute on Veteran’s Day yesterday, knowing the Coast Guard veterans who came before us laid the foundation for the incredible work our men and women do today.”

Editor’s Note: Coast Guard helicopter crews responded Friday to reports of 50 people trapped by flooding near Neskowin Creek in Tillamook, Oregon. Photos, videos and more details can be found here.

Coast Guard repatriates 66 Dominican migrants to a Dominican Republic Navy vessel, following the interdiction of 2 illegal voyages in the Mona Passage

The aircrew of a Customs and Border Protection Marine Enforcement Aircraft detected the second illegal voyage Saturday morning. Following the sighting, the Coast Guard Cutter Winslow Griesser crew interdicted a 25-foot grossly overloaded makeshift boat and safely embarked the migrants.

During both interdictions, the CBP aircrews vectored-in the cutter Winslow Griesser to the migrant vessels’ position.

The interdictions are the result of ongoing local and federal multi-agency efforts in support of the Caribbean Border Interagency Group CBIG.

“I’m truly impressed with the professionalism and dedication displayed by the crew of Winslow Griesser, our CBP partners and Sector San Juan personnel who worked these cases,” said Lt. Benjamin Williamsz, Coast Guard Cutter Winslow Griesser’s commanding officer. “These illegal migrant ventures are incredibly dangerous. Often people we find at sea are on overloaded, un-seaworthy vessels suffering from exposure, heat exhaustion, dehydration, and other acute medical issues. For those considering embarking on such a treacherous voyage – I implore you to find a safe and legal alternative.”

“To anyone considering taking part in one of these voyages we urge them to not take to the sea, you are putting your life and the life of others at risk,” said Cmdr. Beau Powers, Coast Guard Sector San Juan chief of response. “If caught, you are also risking prosecution for migrating illegally to the United States.  Migrants who are interdicted at sea and not prosecuted, will be returned to the country they departed from.”

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention. Throughout the interdiction, Coast Guard crewmembers were equipped with personal protective equipment to minimize potential exposure to any possible case of COVID-19.

Family members in the United States inquiring about possible family members interdicted at sea, please contact your local U.S. representative. Relatives located outside the United States please contact your local U.S. Embassy.

CBIG was formally created to unify efforts of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico Police Joint Forces of Rapid Action, in their common goal of securing the borders of Puerto Rico against illegal migrant and drug smuggling.

(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) USCG REPORT: The crew of Coast Guard Cutter Resolute returns home Saturday, following a successful 56-day Joint Interagency Task Force-South (JIATF-S) & District Seven (D7) Patrol in the Caribbean Sea leading to detaining drug smugglers #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.16: Resolute, with the assistance from a Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) maritime patrol aircraft, tracked and pursued a drug smuggling vessel for eight hours, culminating in a successful intercept and seizure. The suspected smugglers were detained and later transferred for case disposition in the United States.

#AceDailyNews reports that the the coast guards patrol, Resolute interdicted multiple suspected smugglers on a go-fast vessel obtaining 279.5 kilograms of cocaine, and rescued 260 Haitian migrants …….

Coast Guard cutter Resolute returns home from 56-day deployment

Resolute patrols through the Isle de Tortue Canal off the coast of Haiti in September 2021.

Editor’s Note: Click on the images to download high resolution versions

Due to increased political instability in Haiti, Resolute’s tasking shifted to Alien Migration Interdiction Operations in the Windward Pass; specifically to overtly patrol and discourage unsafe maritime migration voyages. On Sept. 24, Resolute conducted one of the largest single-unit repatriations into Cap Haitien, Haiti in recent history. Small-boat crews conducted 78 consecutive transfers safely returning all 260 migrants and their personal belongings back to Haitian authorities.    

On Sept. 22, Resolute interdicted an overcrowded sail freighter with 183 Haitian migrants including 17 children and infants aboard. Bound for the United States, the 55-foot vessel was dangerously overloaded and lacked sufficient navigation and safety equipment to make the journey. All 183 migrants were transferred safely to the cutter where they were provided food, water, shelter, and medical attention. In less than 24-hours, Resolute received an additional 77 migrants from another Coast Guard asset, raising the total count to 260.

“The migrant interdiction mission is always unique; while the migrants are attempting to escape the poor living conditions in Haiti, their unsafe voyages risk the lives of innocent people, including children,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Joseph Wooley, a maritime enforcement specialist. “It is unfortunate to see, but it makes us feel good knowing that we potentially saved 183 people from capsizing and drowning at sea.”

After a long and successful patrol, the crew is eager to return home and spend the holiday season with friends, family and loved ones.

“The crew’s actions during this patrol were heroic and inspiring. I am especially impressed with their professional dexterity and ability to shift from counter-drug operations to humanitarian missions in a moment’s notice, embracing our service motto: Semper Paratus-Always Ready,” said Cmdr. Justin Vanden Heuvel, commanding officer of Resolute.

Resolute is a 210-foot Reliance class cutter and has a crew of 72. Resolute was commissioned on December 8, 1966, and is homeported St. Petersburg, Florida.

“For those considering taking part in an illegal migrant voyage across the Mona Passage, don’t take to the sea,” said Capt. Gregory H. Magee, Coast Guard Sector San Juan commander.  “You will be repatriated and returned to your country of origin or could even face possible prosecution.  This is a dangerous and perilous voyage, and it is just not worth placing your life in the hands of smugglers who have no regard for your safety or well-being.  These voyages most often take place in dangerous sea states, aboard grossly overloaded and unseaworthy vessels that have no lifesaving equipment.”

During a routine patrol of the Mona Passage Sunday, the crew of a Customs and Border Protection CBP Marine Enforcement Aircraft detected a suspect illegal migrant vessel voyage, approximately five nautical miles west of Mona Island, Puerto Rico. Coast Guard watchstanders in Sector San Juan diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Richard Dixon that arrived on-scene and stopped the 25-foot makeshift boat. The vessel was transporting nine men and three females, including two adult women and a 15-year-old minor. The crew of cutter Richard Dixon safely embarked the migrants and later transferred them to the Coast Guard Cutter Joseph Tezanos.

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants received food, water, shelter, and basic medical attention. Throughout the interdiction Coast Guard crewmembers were equipped with Personal Protective Equipment to minimize potential exposure to any possible case of COVID-19. No migrants were reported to have any COVID-19 related symptoms.

Ramey Sector Border Patrol agents in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico received custody of the two suspected smugglers.

Cutters Richard Dixon and Joseph Tezanos are 154-foot fast response cutters homeported in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

CBIG was formally created to unify efforts of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico Police Joint Forces of Rapid Action, in their common goal of securing the borders of Puerto Rico against illegal migrant and drug smuggling.
