    Default blue water

    Hello! This may help to understand the context:
    http://www.ser2000.org.ar/articulos-...10/mariano.htm

    Los últimos lineamientos de la Armada y los Marines, en tanto, se condensan en el documento conjunto "From the Sea", de cuyo contenido se desprende que las fuerzas navales deben prepararse para operar y ejercer el control del mar en aguas costeras ("brown water Navy"), orientación ésta que entraña un cambio fundamental respecto al tradicional énfasis en el combate en alta mar ("blue water Navy"). Tales operaciones en aguas costeras en respuesta a crisis y conflictos puntuales abarcarán desde el combate, donde el objetivo es la victoria, hasta la defensa de los intereses americanos en misiones de paz (31).

    Cheers!

    Yep, I agree... "en alta mar" it's a good option, and I think "mar abierto" could also work.

    Blue water es mar abierto, lejos de la costa, por ejemplo, los barcos navegan en mar abierto.
    Suerte.
