FRENCH NAVY SHIP WILL VISIT FOR WEEKEND

0

Dec. 5, 2002 – The French ocean patrol vessel Ventose will visit St. Thomas from 9 a.m. Friday, Dec. 6, until Monday morning.
An October visit had to be canceled, said French Consul for the Virgin Islands Odile de Lyrot, when the ship had to participate in an operational emergency with an American task force. That emergency resulted in the seizure of 2,640 pounds of cocaine.
The ship is based in Fort-de-France, Martinique, and patrols throughout the Caribbean and further oceans. For a photo of the ship, see St. Thomas Source Community/Other stuff section.
The ship will be berthed at Crown Bay Marina, and visits aboard ship can be organized from 2:30 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday through de Lyrot at 881-5452.
