USS Constitution Turnaround

#1 Post by kenny » 19 Oct 2017 14:57

USS Constitution will be getting underway for her first turnaround demonstration since October 2014 from Charlestown Navy Yard on Friday Oct. 20 at 10 a.m. in commemoration of the Navy and Constitution’s Birthday.

The ship will be travelling to Fort Independence on Castle Island where she will be firing a 21-gun salute at approximately 11:30 a.m. with the Concord Battery and 101st Field Artillery from the Massachusetts National Guard returning the salute. An additional 17-gun salute will be fired as she passes the U.S. Coast Guard Station, the former site of the Edmund Hartt Shipyard where Constitution was built and launched. Following the second salute Constitution will be returning to her berth in the Navy Yard and is expected to be pier side by 1 p.m.

The public is encouraged to view the events held on Oct. 20th from around Boston Harbor, Castle Island or the Charlestown Navy Yard.
