PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - The crew of Coast Guard Cutter Legare has returned to Portsmouth, Virginia following a 36-day patrol in the Atlantic Ocean.

The ship arrived in Virginia on Friday.

During the patrol, Legare’s crew rescued a disabled fishing boat crew, conducted multiple vessel boardings and volunteered in two ports during their free time.

In April, Legare’s crew towed the 61-foot fishing boat Angela Michelle to Gloucester, Massachusetts, after the boat became disabled about 115 miles east of Gloucester.

Legare’s crew also conducted various fisheries boardings while in the Gulf of Maine and waters near Georges Bank. Six violations were issued to fishermen and four fishing boat captains. During port calls, the Legare’s volunteered at the Preble Street soup kitchen in Portland, Maine, and the New England Center for Homeless Veterans in Boston.
