Spain. A-71 Juan Sebastián Elcano

[ img ]

The Juan Sebastián Elcano (A-71) is the school ship of the Spanish Navy. Was built between 1925 and 1928 in Cadiz (Spain) and since then it has performed a training cruise every year with the cadets of the Naval Academy. It has a barquentine rig, mixed propulsion and exhausts the fumes through a hollow mast.

Is named after the first navigator to circumnavigate the world. The coat of arms, which is that of the Elcano family, bears the words "PRIMUS CIRCUNDEISTI ME".

A second unit, the Esmeralda, was acquired by the Chilean Navy.

Greetings,
Very nice drawing, but may I make two remarks?

First, I think the flag and its pole at the stern of a ship do not count for its overall length, right? So, to give a correct perspective of the real length of the ship I would suggest changing a bit the scale at the top to match the perpendicular of the ship's stern.

Second, and thinking now in practical terms, how can the ship change board if the sail's booms are longer than the space between masts?

I hope you agree with me.

Galleon Santiago de Oliste

A picture by my friend Andrés López, which I turned into SB, based on paintings of the time: the galleon Santiago de Oliste, flagship of Admiral Oquendo in the Battle of Pernambuco (or Abrojos) in 1631.

O, the ship is adorned with the gold of El Dorado! Nice job man!

And I can see a blue string on the mainmast...
