On 9 September 2017 as prescribed by their curriculum at the Naval Academy, the trainees from the military cadet division had their first training voyage. It was conducted onboard the m/v 422 in the waters of the Lake of Varna.
In the course of their training session the cadets are involved in a number of activities designed to help them acquire practical skills. Berthing, mooring, navigation in restricted waters, checking the readiness of the engine: these are just a few of the tasks to be played through during the voyage. The cadets study the construction of the engine and take part in providing onboard communication.
They complete all their tasks under the watchful supervision and guidance of their commanders.
