In another step towards completing hull integration in the coming months, Royal Australian Navy’s third air warfare destroyer, the future Sydney, received her mast on May 15.

AWD Alliance, with shipbuilder ASC at the helm, loaded out the mast onto the hull of Sydney, following a mast stepping ceremony that was held last week.

The mast stepping ceremony celebrates a long standing naval tradition, dating back to the ancient Romans, which involves placing a coin under the mast of a ship for good luck.
