The presence and surveillance activity of the aircraft carrier cruiser continues Garibaldi in the Mediterranean Sea to protect the interests of the country and to defend the free use of the high seas.

The two naval units of the Patrol Forces Command for Coastal Surveillance and Defense (COMFORPAT) of Augusta, Nave Borsini and Ship Sirius, engaged in an important training activity of Naval Command School (SCN) for young officers of the Navy who are about to become commanders of warships.

There were 2 intense days of training events and maneuvers in formation among the aforementioned ships Borsini, Sirius of the Ship Bergamini, Ship Stromboli of the Ship Garibaldi: position taking on screens, flanking and refueling maneuvers, air defense activities from simulated attacks by our AV8B + aircraft Harrier, flight operations with formation of 6 helicopters; an extraordinary mix with exciting training moments of different nature, perfectly interpreted by professional sea “actors”, such as the men and women who make up the crews of ships, helicopters and airplanes of the Navy.

This session of the Naval Command School was the 290th, demonstrating that it is a fundamental activity, based on strong seafaring traditions and indispensable for the training of young officers, even in this delicate historical moment of the country. A unique and unforgettable session for the future Commanders of the Navy who were able to train and maneuver by plowing in the wake of the first Italian aircraft carrier.

The mission of presence and surveillance of our seas continues in the coming days for Nave Garibaldi and for its commander, ship captain Stefano Luigi Donno.

Favorable seas and winds!
