Prince Carl Philip is currently on a multinational maritime exercise in the Northern Coasts until the 11 of September. The exercise is being held in Finland; the Prince is part of the team that monitors, manages, coordinates and prioritizes activities for approximately 30 subordinate vessels.
Over 13 other countries are part of this exercise; there are 55 ships and 2,800 people. The exercise takes place in the Gulf of Bothnia, northern Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland. Its goal is to be able to operate in narrow and shallow waters with large groups of vessels where one must pay close attention to civilian shipping in the area; and is part of EU and NATO initiative.
