U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Ocracoke visits Freeport

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- On March 28-29, the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Cutter Ocracoke teamed up with the Bahamas Air - Sea Rescue Association (BASRA), the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF), and the Bahamas Department of Customs as part of partnership initiatives coordinated by U.S. Embassy Nassau.

The Freeport YMCA graciously offered their facility for the USCG, RBDF and Customs officers to have a hands-on training site where topics such as defensive tactics, non-compliant suspect escorts, and handcuffing techniques were reviewed.

Through coordination with BASRA and its safe boating program, Ocracoke hosted tours of the cutter for students of St. Paul's Methodist College and the Lucaya International School.  The students were able to see firsthand the cutter's armament, smallboat, and bridge navigation area while enjoying the chance to ask Ocracoke's crewmembers questions about the Coast Guard's mission in the Bahamas.
