Seafarers are advised that the Barbados Coast Guard will be conducting a Live Firing Exercise at sea on Saturday, October 20.
The area designated for the exercise will be five to eight nautical miles west of the Arawak Cement Plant, and it will be conducted between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
All firing will be done at surface level, and no rounds will be projected into the air. A radar watch of the area will be maintained to ensure that no intrusion occurs. HMBS Leonard C. Banfield and HMBS Rudyard Lewis will participate in this exercise.
The Barbados Defence Force apologises for any inconvenience this exercise may cause, and thanks members of the public, especially seafarers, for their cooperation.
