Bienvenido a Newport Juan Sebastian de Elcano!

Another day another amazing ship sails into Newport!  The massive J.S. de Elcano is 370 feet long and is the third largest tall ship in the world.  She is named after Spanish explorer Juan Sebastián Elcano, captain of Ferdinand Magellan's last exploratory fleet. The Juan Sebastián de Elcano was built in 1927 in Cadiz, Spain and today she is used as a training vessel.

Come to Newport this weekend and check out this amazing tall ship!

Thanks to Captain Duncan for these great photos!
