USCG Cutter James Arrives Home

The Coast Guard Cutter James, the second National Security Cutter for the East Coast, docked on Friday at its inaugural homeport in Charleston.

During its maiden voyage following commissioning events in Boston Aug. 8, the James logged more than 10,000 miles, completed underway certification and made port calls to New York City, Halifax, Nova Scotia and Baltimore, 48 days after leaving the Ingalls Shipbuilding facility in Pascagoula, Mississippi.

During the transit from the shipyard and port calls, James’ 119 crew members completed their Ready for Sea training, and completed underway qualifications for deck and engineering watchstanding, as well as for damage control.

In the following months, James and its crew will undergo more training and certification until it deploys next year to conduct maritime law enforcement missions throughout the Western Hemisphere.
