The first Fast Response Cutter, Bernard C. Webber, gets underway.

The USCGC Bernard C. Webber is the first of the United States Coast Guard's Sentinel class cutters.[1] Like most of her sister ships she will replace an 110 foot Island class cutter.

The Bernard C. Webber was launched in April 2011.[2] She commenced her sea trials on November 27, 2011. She arrived in her homeport of Miami, Florida, on February 6, 2012.[3] She was commissioned on April 14, 2012, at the Port of Miami, Miami, Florida.

The Bernard C. Webber, and the second and third vessels in the class, the Richard Etheridge, and the William Flores, will all be based in Miami, Florida.[4]

Like the other ships of her class the Bernard C. Webber is named after a heroic enlisted member of the Coast Guard.[1]
