Spanish Naval Training Ship Juan Sebastian de Elcano Visits Pensacola, Florida USA for the 300th year celebration of the permanent settlement of Pensacola by the Spanish in 1698

Excited Pensacolians Climb the Gangway to tour the Ship.

Landlubbers sometimes have trouble with steep steps on ships! The Spanish Sailors were always available to answer questions about the ship.

The ship was visited by an estimated 7,000
visitors while at the Port of Pensacola!
A sailing ship has a LOT of rope!
