Bernews reports on Bermuda's Coast Guard Patrol being on high alert during this year's Cup Match holiday weekend in what must be the first ever Cup Match weekend without Cup Match!  Despite the pandemic still having some restrictions on the size of social gatherings, the Island enjoyed a relatively calm Cup Match with the Coast Guard patrols checking out more than 3,000 boats during the first two days of the holiday.

He added that people out in boats appreciated the patrols and the sense of security they provided.
