On June 11, a 65 foot long Guatemalan naval gunboat ran aground on Glovers Reef, Belize. The boat was en route to Mexico when it “lost its bearings” and ventured into Belize’s waters before striking the reef. The Belize coast guard was notified and sent out patrol vessels to the scene.
When the officers of the Guatemalan vessel were interviewed, they stated the vessel had lost steering and gone adrift before it struck the reef. No reports of injuries.
