    Welcome and thank you for the picture. Principe de Asturias will be soon scrapped for budgetary reasons. And it looks like it was yesterday when it replaced old, venerable Dedalo. Oh, well...

    After our first escort we headed to the meeting point with the second merchant ship that we have assigned to provide protection. Her route goes from Port Sudan (Sudan) to Mombasa (Kenya), across the Strait of Bab el Mandeb and Gulf of Aden, and we will be an shared convoy with the french frigate 'Surcouf'.
    The crew is overturned in the preparation of Christmas on board. The few free moments at our disposal during the afternoons are devoted to assay Christmas carol and making nativity scenes, subject to the creativity of each group. Next day will be the gala of the competition presented by ensign Alejandro Fraga and in which a demanding jury, the Commander, 2nd Commander, the chaplain, the Brigade D. Amador Serrano and the Corporal Gonzalo Fernandez will select the best, Christmas carol, Bethlehem and Christmas card.

    The Spanish frigate 'Méndez Núñez', deployed in the Gulf of Aden off the coast of Somalia, prevented the kidnapping last week of North Korean-flagged merchant ship 'Dae San', in circumstances that are being investigated .

    As reported today by the Ministry of Defence, the merchant was anchored and guarded by police maritime region of Puntland, northern Somalia, for allegedly pouring cement, when the Spanish frigate received a message that she had been kidnapped.


    After the first reports, in which the circumstances were not clear, Defence worked with the possibility that the police themselves which were guarding him had decided to hijack the merchant.


    The frigate 'Méndez Núñez, who had just completed his second ship escort World Food Program, was appointed to investigate the incident.


    Early on Dec. 19, in a joint operation with another ship deployed in the EU operation Atalanta, the Spanish frigate intercepted the 'Dae San' when navigating in areas held by pirates in northern Somalia.


    The merchant was escorted to his return to Boosaaso, its home port, where local authorities took over the investigation of the incident.

    The Oceanographic Research Vessel SPS 'Hesperides' has arrived at the two Spanish bases in Antarctica, "Juan Carlos I" on Livingston Island and "Gabriel de Castilla" on Decepción Island. On arrival, the Spanish Navy ship proceeded to the discharge of personnel and material required for the opening of the bases.On 17 December, the 'Hesperides' left the southern city of Punta Arenas (Chile). After crossing the Patagonian Channels and the 'Mar de Hoces', reached the South Shetland Islands in the morning of 21, where he made transfers of personnel and material to Argentina scientific base "Carlini" and the Chilean base "Presidente Frei".
    Then sailed for Livingston Island for discharging necessary personnel and material and so proceed with the opening of the base "Juan Carlos I", which this year celebrates 25 years since its founding. Also took the opportunity to move some Bulgarian scientists to base "St. Kliment Ohridski ".
    During the morning of 23 the ship moved to Decepción Island. After inspecting its seismic and volcanic activity, as the island is an active volcano, was proceeded to the discharge of personnel to implement the base "Gabriel de Castilla". In the afternoon we held the act of hoisting the national flag, signaling the beginning of the two Antarctic bases.

    The combat supply ship SPS 'Cantabria' has departed this morning from Naval Station La Graña, in Ferrol (La Coruña), bound for Australia, to be deployed in mid-February with the Australian Navy for a period of nine months.

    The deployment of the 'Cantabria' will allow the Navy to operate in a marked strategic interest scenario, improve the training of the ship and its crew to levels much higher than that provided by the current scenario of budget constraints, and test mechanisms support long duration deployments.


    Meanwhile, the cooperation of the Spanish ship served the Royal Australian Navy to increase their training and evaluate the capabilities of the 'Cantabria' class with a view to replacing its logistic support vessels, so that this deployment will enable a detailed evaluation of their abilities as a possible candidate for the program future supply Australians ships.


    To address this long deployment, the 'Cantabria' has been under intense training, including a period of immobilization in drydock and sea trials off the coast of Ferrol. Thereafter the ship was moved to the Rota Naval Base to conduct training supported by the Centre for Evaluation and Assessment for Combat, complete outstanding certifications and verify proper operation of equipment and systems.


    For this mission, the ship will have a crew of 146 men and women. For jobs, these are 21 officers (including the Commander), 24 NCOs, 25 corporals first, 16 corporals and 60 sailors.


    Besides the Spanish military personnel during the transit to Sydney a contingent of twelve members of the Australian Navy will embark, which will be fully integrated in the 'Cantabria' to start its setting on the platform and training in handling equipment.
