BRP Gregorio del Pilar left Alameda on the 18th of July, 2011. She cast off at 1718H, and was underway by 1738H. The PN flagship is expected to make her first stop in Hawaii on July the 27th before proceeding to Guam, and then the Philippines.
After her arrival in the Philippines, she may spend additional time in drydock, as the following Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS) entry indicates. Presumably this is when she will be repainted in standard Navy gray.
