Black Sea Transit

Today, the crew enjoyed a routine day underway transiting the Black Sea. Our main focus was preparing for our upcoming port visit to Batumi, Georgia.

While in Batumi we will conduct combined training with the Georgian Coast Guard, assist in a Community relations project, host a reception onboard for local dignitaries and enjoy liberty in town.

Working with other Navies is something we do quite often. It is a great way to increase understanding between Sailors of different countries and in the long run leads to more effective operations.
