ABOUT THE SHIP
This three-masted barque, launched on 1st December 1995 as a sail training ship for the Indian Navy, was constructed in Goa to a design by the British naval architect Colin Mudie. In 2004 she became the first Indian naval ship to circumnavigate the globe.
As well as racing, the ship sails extensively across the Indian Ocean, providing a sail training experience to the officer cadets of the Indian Navy. The Navy believes that training onboard these ships is the best method of instilling among the trainees a respect for the elements of nature. And that sail training also serves to impart the values of courage, camaraderie, endurance and esprit-de-corps among young naval officers.
