PORTSMOUTH

The Coast Guard Cutter Tampa is expected to return today from a 61-day patrol in the Caribbean Sea.

While on patrol, the cutter repatriated 45 Haitian immigrants who were taken off a vessel that wasn’t seaworthy, a Coast Guard news release says. They were repatriated to Port-au-Prince.

The cutter also provided food, water, shelter and medical attention to 100 Cuban migrants who were returned to Cuba, the release says.

The crew refueled and repaired a disabled vessel that was taking on water in the Yucatan Channel and worked with the Bahamas National Council for Disabilities in Nassau.

The cutter is scheduled to return to Portsmouth at 9 a.m.
