Today, June 19, the training ship palinuro arrived in the port of Brindisi, completing the first phase of the education campaign for the students of the Francesco Morosini military naval school in Venice.
The students of the 1st course thus give way to those of the 2nd to carry out a training course of excellence that bases its foundations on the centuries-old notions and traditions of sailing: values and skills born in the past to prepare future "sailors. ".
Ship palinuro left the naval base of La Spezia last June 7, at the end of the usual winter maintenance stop to carry out the 2021 education campaign in favor of the students of Morosini and of the marshals of the second class of Mariscuola Taranto. The education campaign will circumnavigate Italy until the end of July, making numerous passes close to the coast along the Tyrrhenian, Ionian and Adriatic coasts.
The Education Campaign on sailing ships represents a milestone in the training of Navy personnel in the field of sailing and seafaring.
In the period aboard the schooner palinuro the students will carry out multidisciplinary activities ranging from maneuvers to sails to the management of on-board systems, passing from the ancient practice of astronomical navigation.
The students will participate as protagonists in the routine activities of life on board which, thanks to its peculiar dynamics and unwritten rules, contributes to the training of Navy personnel.
Among the many cities to which Livorno, Procida, Reggio Calabria and the homonymous Palinuro paid tribute, illuminating the places touched with the tricolor projected on their masts, flagpoles and sails: the colors green, white and red, as a symbol of national unity and of testimony of the proximity of the Navy to the country.
