Governor  John Rankin said, “We welcome for the visit of RFA Wave Knight to Bermuda and are grateful for her support on crisis preparedness and crisis response throughout the region. For the people of Bermuda it was certainly a reassurance during Hurricane Nicole that RFA Wave Knight was nearby to provide assistance if called upon.”
