Put on your most colorful coat and line the dock to greet the Mexican Navy Tall Ship Cuauhtémoc arrive in dramatic fashion or better yet, give your boat a spin around the harbor to welcome our visiting vessel with a Seward flotilla! The ship is scheduled to arrive Monday, Sept. 15 about 10 a.m.

The ship visited Seward in 2005 and allowed thousands to tour the ship. Details on times and opportunities have not been finalized, so check back with the LOG Facebook page for more information. In Seattle, the ship was reportedly open for tours each day it was docked from 10 to 11 a.m. The boat is expected to depart Sept. 19.

The ship with its cadets descending from the rigging, above, when it docked at Pier 66 in Seattle, leaving there on Sept. 1 to sail on to Vancouver and then to Seward.

The Cuauhtémoc is a teaching vessel from the Mexican Navy, where cadets are trained in international waters before graduating as officials. It was built in Spain in 1982 and has since sailed around the world for over 30 years.

Information has been provided to the LOG by Deborah Altermatt of Sailing, Inc. and Christy Terry with Alaska Railroad where the ship will dock.
