Dear Sir/Madame,

RE: ITF urges that the Search and Rescue for Bourbon Rhode IMO 9356359 continues

The International Transport Workers’ Federation which comprises of 670 unions worldwide representing around 18.5 million transport workers, strongly urges your government to continue the Search and Rescue (SAR) efforts for the missing crew that were lost at sea on the 26 September 2019 when theAHT/terminal tug Bourbon Rhode sunk due to the category 4 hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean near Martinique. 

For unknown reasons the SAR efforts were halted after only a week, but was then resumed a couple of days later. So far three crew members have been found alive, four confirmed deceased which means that seven seafarers are still waiting to be found.

We have been informed that the four life rafts on board were successfully launched and therefore there it is highly likely that the remaining crew are still alive waiting and hoping to be rescued.

Please do everything within your power to ensure that the search for the seafarers continue. 

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards

Stephen Cotton
