U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Isaac Mayo crew conducts engagements with Cayman Islands Coast Guard

GEORGETOWN, Cayman Islands – The crew of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Isaac Mayo (WPC-1112) visited Georgetown, Jan. 9-11, 2024, to meet with Cayman Islands maritime security stakeholders.

Mayo’s crew hosted several members of the Cayman Islands government and Coast Guard leadership, including Governor Jane Owen, Commandant Robert Scotland, and Deputy Commandant Leo Anglin for discussion of the island nation’s mission needs and furthering a successful partnership in the future. 

The Mayo crew engaged in professional exchanges within the ranks of the Cayman Islands Coast Guard, hosting the island’s corps of cadets and providing tours to members of the Cayman Island’s Veterans and Seafarer’s organization – building upon the extensive history and tradition of the island nation’s maritime ideology.

“We were honored to represent the U.S. Coast Guard during such a strategic engagement with representatives from the Cayman Islands,” said Lt. Cmdr. Travis Murray, Isaac Mayo’s commanding officer.  “Whether conducting maritime law enforcement operations, saving lives at sea, or participating in professional exchanges, our organization is committed to working with our partners in the region to ensure the safety of all who operate in the maritime realm.”

Building upon a visit to the island by officials from Coast Guard Sector Key West in Summer 2023, this engagement showcased the capabilities of the Fast Response Cutter, as the Cayman Islands Coast Guard continues to grow and expand their operations. Despite only being established in recent years, the Cayman Islands Coast Guard has increased their footprint in the Western Caribbean region as a capable maritime security, and search and rescue partner to stem the flow of illegal narcotics and migration ventures.

Commissioned in 2015, Isaac Mayo is a Sentinel Class Fast Response Cutter homeported in Key West, Florida. Sentinel Class cutters are 154 feet long and are capable of speeds up to 35 mph.
