>Amerigo Vespucci in Istanbul

>Italian training ship Amerigo Vespucci is visiting Istanbul currently. She will be leaving tomorrow.

She has 90 cadets on board during for this years cruise.

The lack of sail training ships in inventory of Turkish Navy is in my opinion one important ommission.

There is no better way than sailing and challenging the elements, in order to develop good ship handling skills and a feeling for the sea. Today’s naval war fighting has become something like an arcade game. All command, control and communication are done in the bowels of the ship. Yet a commander of any kind of warship must be a sailor first.
