After a few days in West India Dock,  the ARM Cuauhtémoc tall ship left the dock to continue her travels around the world. Fortunately one of our regular contributors, Eric Pemberton was on hand to record the ship leaving the dock.

The ARM Cuauhtémoc  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.

One of the joys of living on the Isle of Dogs is to see some wonderful ships going into the dock and up and down the river.
