Visakhapatnam: The INS Sahyadri, which is presently anchored at Hawaii Rim of the Pacific Exercise (RIMPAC-18), continued to excel in sporting activities as a part of harbour phase of the exercise. The theme for RIMPAC-2018 is ‘Capable, adaptive, partners’. Participating nations and forces will exercise a wide range of capabilities and demonstrate inherent flexibility of maritime forces.
