NYC Fleet Week

Took a tour of the Juan Sebastian de Elcano, a training vessel for Midshipmen of the Spanish Naval Academy. This beauty, built in 1927, is about twice the size of the Javea in THE MORE BEYOND but holds about the same number of crew. For all that's changed in the last 300 years, sailing is still taught by the basics - navigation, duty, and the power of the wind.
