M I D S H I P M E N F I R S T TO EMBARK ON CHINESE TRAINING SHIP
Naval Academy Midshipman 1st Class Sarah Early and Midshipman 2nd Class Krystyna Nowakowski became the first U.S. midshipmen to embark on board a Chinese ship this summer. The midshipmen stayed on the Chinese training ship Zheng He for nearly two weeks as it transited from Cadiz, Spain, across the Atlantic Ocean to Halifax in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. The ship, operated by a crew of officers and enlisted in the Chinese Navy, is designed as a hands-on training vessel for midshipmen from China’s Dalian Naval Academy.
