Royal Australian Navy Sailors engage in boarding training during Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2020 to enhance interoperability and strengthen strategic maritime partnerships. Ten nations, 22 ships, a submarine and more than 5,300 personnel participated in the biennial exercise August 17-31 in waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. RIMPAC, in its 27th iteration, builds cooperative relationships to support a Free and Open Indo-Pacific. To mitigate the COVID-19 threat, personnel conducted RIMPAC 2020 exclusively at sea.
