Coast Guard black hulls meet
It’s on! The Annual District Buoy Tender Roundup begins today in Juneau as nine U.S. Coast Guard buoy tenders from Alaska, Washington, Oregon and British Columbia gather to study, train and compete in skills they will use in their various ships and on the waterways they sail.
“It’s about training and lessons learned,” said Lt. Jason Haag, commanding officer of the Coast Guard cutter Henry Blake. “It’s an opportunity to get everybody together and is in our best interest.”
