Spanish Traning Ship "Juan Sebastian Elcano"
This morning the training ship of the Royal Spanish Navy "Juan Sebastian Elcano" came into port, from Cagliari.
The "Elcano", as it is known has not been in the Port of Mahon for eleven years and it has shown the formidable spectacle of watching its arrival with the complete Crewformed on deck with their orange uniforms in the gray, cold morning.
The secretary of the Naval Captaincy of the Port of Mahon has been invited to witness the spectacle from our hotel and from the terraces there we have taken these photographs.
The Elcano was built in 1927 in Cadiz and according the wikipedia it is the third largest Tall Ship in the world.
