According to the National Infrastructure Development Company (NIDCO), the Galleons Passage has departed Santiago de Cuba and is on its last leg to Trinidad and Tobago.
It is expected to arrive in the country on Monday 16th.
Last week, Nidco indicated that the fabrication of the frame for the forward canopy had been completed and the installation was in the final stage in Cuba, and that the new works will be inspected by Lloyd’s Register before the vessel departs for Trinidad.
Weather and marine officials expressed that there is no good reason as far as the weather is concerned for the vessel to sail from Cuba to Trinidad and Tobago without problems.
Nidco said the last leg of the vessel’s journey to Trinidad will also be piloted by International Maritime Services (IMS).
The journey from Cuba to the Port of Port-of-Spain is 1,367 nautical miles and travelling at 10 knots per hour that journey is estimated at between five to six days.
