INSV Tarini Embarks on Transoceanic Expedition, Led by Resilient Duo of Women Officers

Prior to embarking on its transoceanic journey, INSV Tarini completed a remarkable non-stop voyage of 22 days from INS Mandovi, Goa, arriving at Port Louis on March 21, 2024.

In a testament to the indomitable spirit and prowess of the Indian Navy, the Indian Naval Sailing Vessel (INSV) Tarini set sail from Port Louis, Mauritius on March 30, 2024, embarking on a transoceanic sailing expedition of epic proportions.

Crewed by the resilient duo of Lieutenant Commander Roopa A and Lieutenant Commander Dilna K, INSV Tarini is poised to undertake the return voyage to Goa, covering a distance of approximately 2900 nautical miles.

The expedition, a showcase of seamanship and endurance, was ceremoniously flagged off by distinguished yachtsman Commander Abhilash Tomy (Retd), KC, NM, who serves as the official mentor of the two women officers.

The flag-off ceremony, attended by Capt Manish Sain, Director of the Indian Naval Sailing Association (INSA), and members of the High Commission of India in Mauritius, was a poignant moment highlighting the spirit of camaraderie and cooperation that defines the maritime community.

As INSV Tarini charted its course across the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, a Maritime Coast Guard Dornier aircraft overflew the vessel, symbolizing the unwavering support and vigilance of the Indian Navy in safeguarding maritime interests.

The expedition serves as a crucial component of the preparation training for the upcoming circumnavigation planned to commence in September this year, further solidifying India’s presence and prowess in the realm of oceanic exploration and adventure.

Prior to embarking on its transoceanic journey, INSV Tarini completed a remarkable non-stop voyage of 22 days from INS Mandovi, Goa, arriving at Port Louis on March 21, 2024.
