The journey of Tempest was started way back in 1973 as “MARINO FEST”, by the 1973-77 batch of the Directorate of Marine Engineering and Training (DMET). This was a testimony to the fact that in spite of all the discipline and scheduled life at college, the mariners were nowhere to be left behind when it came to being involved with the city of joy-KOLKATA. It was a witness to the fact that DMET was as much involved with the city’s culture and heritage, as the rest of the city was. The first step to the fest started with two month’s stipend money contributed by four of our forefathers. ‘This’ then went on to become a stepping stone in the history books of heritage of KOLKATA and ‘MARINO FEST ’.
The Tempest today , is a result of all the footslog of the organizing cadets , since the ushering of the festival . It would have been impossible for Tempest to prevail , if not for the founding cadets of this festival .
Tempest being a multi - event festival , is now a synonym for sublimity . Expanding its realm every year , Tempest is considered to be the largest marine festival in South East Asia . Tempest comprises of technical , cultural and sports events .It is but the participation , faring from some of the top colleges of India , that add the gist to Tempest .
