Ships in the bay

Today we have two ships in the bay the HMAS Hobart  and the training ship MV Sycamore.


HMAS Hobart is the first of three ships of the Hobart Class guided missile destroyers. Hobart will provide air defence for accompanying ships in addition to land forces and infrastructure in coastal areas, and for self-protection against missiles and aircraft.


MV Sycamore, The Royal Australian Navy's new multi-role aviation training vessel (MATV), MV Sycamore was launched in Vietnam in August 2016.

The ship’s primary role is to support maritime aviation training of Defence helicopter flight crews. The 94-metre civilian ship is a flight deck equipped sea-going training vessel for most types of helicopters used by the Australian Defence Force.

They were doing some close quarter sailing this afternoon.
