Davne godine 1957. Dubrovačku Pomorsku Školu je završila grupa studenata, njih 22, i otišlo u plovidbu na daleke pučine ... diljem svijeta, kao mladi kadeti, puni volje i željni znanja i pomoračke prakse.... .Završili su mnoge ispite, diplomirali su Višu Pomorsku školu, a zatim nastavili plovidbu kao vrsni "meštri od mora i brodova" - Kapetani Duge Plovidbe. Vrijeme zaista brzo leti i ove godine je ni manje ni više nego punih pedeset godina od dana kad su partili!  Sprema se velika "Fešta od 50 godina" u Dubrovniku

u petak 14. rujna 2007.

Sjetit će se toga dana na svoje profesore i umrle kolege, posjetit će Pomorski Fakultet, polozit cvijeće na grob svog razrednika, uvaženog Prof. Josipa Surića, biti na Sv. misi u Crkvi Sv. Vlaha za umrle i prisustvovati  zajedničkom objedu.
