25 JUN 2018—Seafarers conducting business at the Maritime Training Center were treated to free snacks in celebration of this year’s Day of the Seafarer.

Seafarers visiting the training center were greeted by banners for the annual celebration. Snacks were also laid out the whole day, free for the taking, in front of the Training Department and the Training Registration Office where most foot traffic was expected.

Created in 2010, Day of the Seafarer is a yearly observance commemorating seafarers worldwide and their part in economic and societal progress. This year’s celebration brings seafarers’ wellbeing into focus, with further emphasis on mental health.
