Type the word training into the search window to the left on this page and you’ll get a variety of posts, as here. And truth be told, many other options exist for summer training and sea time for ocean academy students; I met cadets from at least three on my “go west” trip. Yesterday David Silver got me advance notice of when this training ship would leave port; thanks to him, I got these photos.
Kimberly Turecamo assisted, as did Julia Miller and Amy C McAllister.
By 1230 Friday, she was west of the Brooklyn Bridge and headed for sea,
for Maine, and by
this posting, she’s already east of Cape Cod.

Recognize this northbound tanker?
Another orange PCTC . . . escorted in by Margaret, I think.
Torm Lotte . . .
The Peter Max vessel headed for Florida and back by next weekend?
Conrad S . . . she of the
whaleback forecastle to lessen greenwater loading?
And another PCTC . . .
Hoegh Inchon escorted in by Margaret again . . . .

In my sixth boro observation, Maersk has more container ships than other types of vessels. Over four years ago, I posted this about the seven-pointed star logo, and all my photos there are ships carrying boxes. So earlier this week when I read about the tanker Carla Maersk colliding with the bulk carrier Conti Peridot, I recalled having seen a Maersk tanker in the sixth boro in January, I wondered. Had it been Carla? Had Carla been in New York harbor?
See it there . . the third tanker in the row, the blue hull at sunrise on January 23? Black hull is Whistler Spirit, then Cape Troy, and then . . .
Nope . .. not Carla here approached by Julia Miller. It’s . . .
As to the question . . . has Carla ever been here? The answer I found was surprising . . . yes. I have a photo of her from 2007 but the name then was Bro Promotion. See the second photo here.

How many more folks in the cold first months of 2015 would have slipped on walkways or skidded off roadways had it not been for our annual salt infusion? Spar Spica is the most recent vessel emptied here.
How many old trucks and cars have a second life in the Caribbean islands because of this trade conducted by Grey Shark?
What kind of petroproducts does Pula transport?
The classic Ellen McAllister escorts her in. . .
as another tanker . . . Arionas heads for sea
guided by Elizabeth McAllister.
Deep Blue–named for this??– lingered in port a few days as
did NS Lotus, here a few weeks ago when this ice drifted beyond the Narrows. And what did the crews think of the ice drift?
I really have lost track of the number of salt ships that have delivered anti-ice properties to the land sides of the sixth boro. There was at least one between United Prestige–shown here in mid-February–and Spar Spica.

I thought all the vessels had left under cover of night. Unceremoniously. It turned out that the Japanese and Colombians had, but lots remained. So the best place to go was near the exit . . . everyone would depart through the Narrows. The forecast was 50 percent chance of rain all day, but I’d shoot from under an umbrella if necessary. At 10, tugs were ready for USS Gonzalez to cast off. Doubleclick enlarges fotos.
10:14 . . . she was under weigh.
10:23 . . . Responder returns for the next departee and Miller Girls (?) shuttles yokohamas back to Miller’s home base.
10:38, posing for Black Hawk photogs with a better perch than mine.
11:15 . . . USS Donald Cook moves away.
11:25 . . . San Jac next?
leaving Brooklyn’s “gold coast” (as on lots of these fotos) to port.
11:56 . . . it’s “local-build” USCGC Seneca.
12:26 . . . Elcano departs under 11 sails . . . and screw turned by ” motor diesel sobrealimentado de 2.000 caballos de potencia.”
Scotty Sky passes. . . WW2 vet and still at work, as is
like this Sea Stallion.
. . .oh wait . . . for today, the end of the parade is provided by Guayas.
Some of these vessels will reconvenrge in Norfolk. By 1400 yesterday, I know the French schooners, the Brazilians,
