Cape St George Participates in San Diego Fleet Week
SAN DIEGO - The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Cape St. George (CG 71) participated in the 2015 San Diego Fleet Week Sep. 18-20.

During San Diego Fleet Week the public toured Navy warships and had the opportunity to speak with and learn about the Sailors who make up today’s Navy.

San Diego has one of the largest Navy presences in the U.S. and the fleet week gave the public a chance to understand how the sea services support national defense and freedom of the seas.

Throughout the weekend, Cape St. George hosted daily tours open to the general public. The crew led tour groups and discussed their jobs as subject matter experts to over 2,000 San Diego visitors.

In addition, the ship’s crew participated in the Coronado Speed Fest as part of the Pit Crew Challenge. Nine of her Sailors trained and worked together alongside professional pit crew personnel and competed against other teams comprised of Sailors from other military organizations from the San Diego area in the Military Pit Crew Challenge.

Gas Turbine Specialist Mechanic Second Class Quentin Irvin said reflecting on the experience, “I work on cars in my free time, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of an official pit crew!” 

Cape St. George is homeported in San Diego and is a multi-mission platform capable of air, surface, and sub-surface defense. The ship is currently in the sustainment phase after returning from a Western Pacific deployment in Jan. 2015.
