Mexican Tall Ship Cuauhtémoc in West India Dock

The West India Dock is quite full today with the HMS Enterprise  and the ARM Cuauhtémoc which is a sail training tall ship that is part of the Mexican Navy.

She is one of four sister ships that were built by the Naval Shipyards of Bilbao in 1982 to a 1930s design similar to the famous German Tall ship Gorch Fock.

The Cuauhtémoc is a sailing ambassador for her home country and is a frequent visitor to many of world ports, having sailed over 400,000 nautical miles (700,000 km) in her 23 years of service. She has also appeared in a number of Tall Ships races all over the world.

The ship has around 186 officer and crew and 90 trainees.

At this time, it is not known if she will be open to the public, last time when she visited West India Dock in 2016, she was open for a number of days.
