Several megayachts left Antigua’s English Harbor and Falmouth Harbor this weekend as a sign of protest at the murder of Capt. Drew Gollan, skipper of the 165-foot Perini Navi S/Y Perseus.
Gollan was shot Jan. 22 walking on the road between the harbors after dinner with his partner and their daughter. High-level government officials met with about 350 members of the yachting and tourism industries the next day, promising an increased police presence in the dimly lit area.
“I told them at the meeting we are not feeling safe, happy or welcome here,” said one captain who joined the protest. “We will come back in a week or so and see how it is then and decide at that time if we should stay or not.”
