Around the world in 7 months: All-woman Indian Navy crew of INSV Tarini sets sail on historic voyage

Six female officers of the Indian Navy today began a historic journey that will test their combined endurance and sailing skills. The six women left aboard the Indian Naval Sailing Vessel Tarini on a circumnavigation effort that will see the officers spend more than 200 days at sea.

This is the first time in India’s history that an all-woman crew is attempting to circumnavigate the globe. Previous notable attempts to circle the world include Captain (retd.) Dilip Donde’s solo circumnavigation and Cdr Abhilash Tomy’s non-stop circumnavigation of the globe.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today flagged off 55-foot INSV Tarini from the INS Mandovi naval training base in Goa, bidding adieu to Tarini’s skipper, Lt. Commander Vartika Joshi, and crew, Lt. Commanders Pratibha Jamwal, P Swathi, and Lieutenants S Vijaya Devi, B Aishwarya and Payal Gupta.

“This is not an occasion which can happen once in five years, once in ten years. This is a historic day for India. A historic day, which will be marked in navigation history and globally,” Sitharaman said, after flagging off ‘Navika Sagar Parikrama’, the official name of the circumnavigation effort.

“Our women are going to stand out for doing something which mostly wouldn’t even have been thought of,” Sitharaman, India’s first full-time female defence minister, said at the event, which was attended by former defence minister and current Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Several sailing enthusiasts bid Tarini bon voyage as the naval ship headed out of the Goa harbour.

Top Navy brass – including Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Sunil Lanba, and Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Southern Naval Command, Vice Admiral AR Karve, attended the flagging off ceremony.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who met the six women last month, sent out his wishes to INSV Tarini’s crew earlier in the day.

“Today is a special day! 6 women officers of the Navy begin their journey of circumnavigating the globe on board INSV Tarini,” PM Modi tweeted. “The entire nation comes together in wishing the all-women team of Navika Sagar Parikrama the very best in their remarkable endeavour.”

INSV Tarini and its six-member all-woman crew is expected to anchor back in Goa sometime in April, 2018. The 55-foot sailing vessel was indigenously built and was inducted into Navy earlier this year.

During their circumnavigation journey the crew will make four stopover – Fremantle (Australia), Lyttleton (New Zealand), Port Stanley (Falklands), and Cape Town (South Africa). The first leg of the journey will see the women sail from Goa to Australia.

The journey will see the officers sail through three oceans – Indian, Pacific and Atlantic. During the voyage, the crew will monitor and report marine pollution on the high seas, and collate and update meteorological, ocean and wave data in order to help the India Meteorological Department (IMD) better forecast the weather. The data will also be used to for research and development by various Indian organisations.

The crew is also expected to meet with Persons of Indian Origin during their port-calls in Australia, New Zealand, Falklands and South Africa.

  4. The house is in almost new condition, having been slept in only a handful of times! It comes fully furnished, including a memory foam mattress and sofa. There’s even silverware and cooking utensils in the kitchen! I guess you could say tiny and small houses are in my blood. I was born in a small 750 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 1 bath home near the Delaware Bay, the sixth of seven children. My five siblings shared one bedroom, while I slept in a drawer in my parents’ 9’x9′ bedroom until I was 3. When the seventh child came along, my parents purchased a large old house.

Sleek shapes and clean lines are a staple of Scandinavian design keeping the structure clean and void of any distracting elements. https://proguntalk.com/community/profile/caryseh34967930/ Let’s Talk About California Mansions Today Luxury is a singular concept–one man’s castle is another man’s headache. But allowing for differences in style and taste, keeping in mind that you can’t fix tacky, what exactly IS a luxury home? The overall definition is a home that’s worth more than a million dollars, but real estate prices across the country are so variable that the number isn’t a realistic indicator. Five million dollars in Dallas buys a lot more house than the same money in Beverly Hills, where the average home goes for around eight million. Luxury Historical Houses for Sale Built in 1900, this four bed, two bath, 3,396 square foot farmhouse has been renovated and brought into the modern era. At only $353 per square foot, the 140 acres are a steal. Not only will buyers get the house (with a fourth bedroom upstairs that has a private entrance and walk-up attic), they will also acquire a large working barn, a heated, in-ground pool, a separate freestanding cabin with bunks and a wood stove and, of course, lots of privacy. As a bonus, the land is being sold with an additional 32 acre residential parcel and commercially-zoned gravel pit, meaning this purchase could lead to a home for a buyer in addition to an avenue for income.
