> F-492 TCG Gemlik left her homeport Aksaz Naval Base to relieve TCG Gökova in Gulf of Aden. Both ships will meet in Djibouti on 8 February. They will exchange information, stories and the mission. When they depart TCG Gökova will sail home and TCG Gemlik will sail to south. She will stay in the region till end of April as a part of CTF-151.
TCG Gökova is in Gulf of Aden since September 2009. She helped the arrest of 6 pirates in January 2010.
I wish both ships calm winds and following seas
