Dechaineux Commanding Officer Commander Dan Sutherland recently decided to share this privilege for one day, for a good cause.

The requirement to traverse both in and on the waters of the greater region creates significant complexity for the enterprise that gets Australian submarines to sea. The sum of all the parts is called ‘seaworthiness’ and looks at the physical condition of submarines as well as the status and training of the personnel that are required to crew and support them.
