INS TARANGINI

The Indian Navy sail training ship TARANGINI conducted a circumnavigation voyage during 2003 & 2004.  Normally ship visits are just a few days but TARANGINI spent two weeks in Hamilton getting her hull sandblasted & painted at Heddle Marine so we got a chance to know both members of the ship’s company and some of their families who flew out from India.  We were treated to receptions and tours of the ship.
