Share post:

CONFLICTING REPORTS surround the capsizing of a catamaran in the wee hours of yesterday.

Reports from management of the three-year-old Boyceterous Catamaran Cruises, people on board the ill-fated cruise and the Barbados Coast Guard offer varying accounts of what took place and the circumstances surrounding it.

The cruise, a private birthday party organised by public relations officer Chanique Morris, left the Careenage around 10:30 p.m. Saturday on its trip along the West Coast.

The official report from the Barbados Coast Guard said they responded to a request for assistance around 1:45 a.m. from the catamaran, which was experiencing engine problems about 200 metres off the harbour. The Coast Guard attempted to tow the catamaran to shore but then disaster struck. (CA)
