  • The Palinuro training ship returns to the Cilento. 

    He will dock on July 10th and will stay there until the 12th. Three days in which, as usual, the boat will be open to guided tours, thanks to the transfers organized by the marina.

    Once again it will be an opportunity to see up close one of the most beautiful ships of the Italian Navy.

    The Palinuro stage is part of the activities of exercises in the Central Mediterranean performed by the students of the first course of the Morosini Naval School. 

    Expected stops in Naples, La Spezia, Genoa, Gaeta, Pantelleria, Sicuracusa and Taranto. 

    The Palinuro training ship is now a regular guest in the Cilento area where it stayed, again in the town of the same name, in 2015, 2016 and 2018. 

    The Palinuro training ship is a "Schooner Ship". 

    The term indicates that the ship is armed with three masts of which that forward, called trinchetto, is armed with square sails, while the mast and mast trees are armed with cutting sails (mainsails, arrows and forestay sails). 

    To these trees is added the bowsprit, a fourth tree that protrudes almost horizontally from the bow end, also armed with cutting sails (flakes). 

    The total sail area is about 1,000 square meters, spread over fifteen sails. 

    The height of the trees above sea level is 35 meters for the foremast, 34.5 meters for the main and 30 meters for the mizzen tree. 

    The hull, like the trees, is made of studded steel and is divided into three bridges. 

    Under the main deck, the living quarters of the crew and students are located. while above are the superstructures of the foreshore castle and the aft quarterdeck. 

    On the quarterdeck, at the far stern, there is the Command Bridge, but inside it are the lodgings and living quarters of the Officers and NCOs, the kitchen and the oven.

    Nave Palinuro has two main tasks: to provide the necessary support for the formation of Alumni Officers and to contribute to the image projection of the Navy. 

    The first objective is realized during the annual education campaigns, when on board the ship, in addition to the crew, the Allievi of the Petty Officer School of Taranto (Mariscuola Taranto) board. 

    On this occasion the Allievi Marescialli face several weeks of navigation, for many of them it is the first boarding experience during which they are subjected to an intense training program in the marine sector, safety, navigation and ethical -military. 

    The promotional contribution and image projection of the Navy manifests itself mainly during the stops in the national and foreign ports, during which the Ship testifies to the population and the local Authorities the most ancient traditions of the Italian navy. 

    The motto of Nave Palinuro is "Faventibus Ventis", "With the favor of the winds". 

    Its port of assignment is La Maddalena.
