NOTE: Margarita, December 30, 2007 -- Sixteen Grenadian citizens who left Port of Spain, Trinidad on Thursday December
20, 2007, aboard the MV CHRISTY B on what should have been a twelve hour journey to Grenada, finally returned to
Grenada on Sunday -- not by boat, but by air. MV CHRISTY B which was carrying the passengers experienced mechanical
problems enroute to Grenada and eventually on December 24 arrived on an island five hours north of Margarita Island
known as Los Testigos after being at sea for approximately three days. After exploring several options in order to
have the shipwrecked passengers safely repatriated to Grenada, the Government of Grenada through its Embassy in Caracas,
Venezuela was able to have the passengers transported by the Venezuelan Coast Guard to Margarita Island on the evening
of December 28, 2007 where accommodation and meals were provided. On Sunday Grenada Ambassador to Venezuela Richard
Mc Phail through his Embassy ensured that tickets were purchased for the Grenadian Citizens (five females and eleven
males) and they were all able to fly back to their families in Grenada aboard ConViasa flight number 2100 which arrived
at Point Salines International Airport just after midday.
