Coast Guard Cutter Active returns home to Port Angeles, Wash.

SEATTLE — The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Active will return to their homeport in Port Angeles, Wash., Thursday at 4 p.m.

The Active spent eight months in dry dock at the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore to conduct maintenance on the cutter. The return transit from Baltimore to Port Angeles was primarily spent training a crew of 79 people, and improving the cutter’s readiness condition.

“By conducting numerous drills, we were able to become a cohesive team ready for emergencies that, fortunately, we did not experience,” said Lt.j.g. Katie Sullivan, the support services officer on board the Active.

The Active traveled 6,700 miles from Coast Guard Yard to Port Angeles in 60 days. Members were able to participate in a community relations project by painting a school in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

“We are ecstatic to be home,” said Sullivan.
