From Sail Training International:
The “Juan Sebastián de Elcano” is the Spanish Navy midshipmen training vessel. She is a four-masted topsail schooner with a hull made of iron and a crew composed of 220 members, including midshipmen. She was launched in 1927 and delivered to the “Armada” in 1928. Since then, she has completed 77 training voyages including ten circumnavigations of the globe; this is, more than one and a half million nautical miles sailed.
Each of her four masts is named after the other training ships which preceded her (Blanca, Almansa, Asturias and Nautilus). The vessel is named in honor of Juan Sebastián de Elcano, the first navigator to complete a voyage around the globe. She also carries the Elcano´s coat of arms which was granted to him by Emperor Charles the 1st as a reward for his glorious deeds.
This historic 4-Mast Top Sail Schooner is the 3rd largest Tall Ship in the world and is the official training ship of the Spanish Navy. The Juan Sebastian de Élcano will be docked at the World Trade Center until Wednesday, May 1.
