Nightime Piloting aboard Growler and Liberator

The Midshipman Waterfront Officers have expanded on last years "Winter Waterfront Operations" series to include summer and fall training opportunities. The program kicked off last night with the first of two nighttime navigation and piloting trips in the East River aboard Growler and Liberator. The program is designed to both introduce the plebe class to more advanced ship handling and navigation, as well as to reinforce the skills of upperclassmen who will be returning to sea.
