INS Tarangini to dock at Doha Port Saturday.

INS Tarangini, the first sail training ship of the Indian Navy would arrive at Doha Port Saturday on a three-day visit to Qatar. 

In the framework of the deep-rooted friendly ties, multi-faceted and growing cooperation between India and Qatar, this is the second time in last three months that an Indian Naval Ship is visiting Qatar. Apart from the visit of Indian Coast Guard ship Samarth in November 2017, Indian Naval Ships Kolkata and Mumbai had visited Qatar this year in March and September respectively. 
This visit is a testimony to the friendly ties between India and Qatar and will further enhance maritime cooperation between the two countries. 
The name Tarangini is derived from the Hindi word ‘Tarang’ meaning waves; and Tarangini meaning ‘the one that rides the waves’. Built in Goa Shipyard Limited, the ship was commissioned in the Indian Navy on 11th November 1997. The vessel has a steel hull, with an aluminium deckhouse and teak wood deck and interiors. She carries 20 sails, with a total sail area of almost 10,000sqft. The ship has excellent endurance and can remain at sea continuously for a period of over 20 days.
