Port of Call | The Mexican navy Barque Cuauhtemoc arrives in San Pedro

A training vessel for the Mexican navy, the three-masted Barque Cuauhtemoc, sailed into the Port of Los Angeles and has docked in San Pedro for a four-day stay.  The historic vessel, with a crew of approximately 200 aboard, is 297 feet long, weighs 1,800 tons and has a rigging height of 168 feet. It carries 23 sails with a maximum sail area of about half an acre.

The tall ship was built in Bilbao, Spain, in 1982 and was acquired by the Mexican navy for officer and crew training. It has logged a total of 616,980 miles during 4,903 sailing days during three decades as a Mexican navy ship.

Currently it is on an eight-month cruise that has taken the crew from the coast of South America, Central America, North America to Alaska and then Hawaii from its home port of Acapulco.

It will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.  The tours are on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations or tickets are not required. Free parking is available at the outer harbor at 3011 Miner Street in San Pedro.
