Search operations carried out since September 26 by the CROSS French West Indies-Guyana and the French Navy have resulted in the rescue of three survivors of the Bourbon Rhode shipwreck, as well as the recovery of four bodies. Bourbon said on Saturday seven other crew members remain missing.

Several vessels continued to survey the search area with no results for the past 4 days. The CROSS has decided to make the search operation evolve. It will regularly disseminate messages to vessels in the shipwreck zone and ask them to carry out adapted watch, Bourbon said.

“BOURBON and all its employees are in mourning today and I would like to reiterate our sincere condolences and our full support to the families and loved ones of the victims. We are working in close cooperation with the various stakeholders to understand the facts and circumstances of this tragedy,” CEO Gael Bodénès said.

He said the company thanks the entire maritime community for its many signs of solidarity following the mishap which occurred after the vessel was caught up in a hurricane en route to Guyana.

“I would like to reiterate our heartfelt thanks to the CROSS teams, the crews of the French Navy and the commercial vessels involved in search operations,” Bodénès said.
