One of the younger Coasties on board.
Getting ready to go. Depature time was 9am.
Who's that shady character? Oh, it's me!
I believe that's the skipper of the boat, Master Chief Petty Officer Gregory Teagle on the right. The USCGC Sockeye is based out of Bodega Bay, CA.
We were stationary on the mid-western edge of the safety zone.
Heading back after a relaxing day in the sun!
We had to wait till the other ships docked before we could tie-up beside them.
Pulling the boat close requires some muscle work!
Have to put a flag out.
Some other members of the crew.
MCPO Teagle gives a short speech thanking everyone for being there.
Col Mahoney also gives a short speech, and hands out some mission coins.
Having some fun leaving the boat. Thanks for the ride!!
