Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you this nice view of the School Ship of the Spanish Navy leaving the mouth of the port of Santander, I hope you like, then some letters on the ship.

The school ship Juan Sebastin de Elcano is a brig-schooner of the Spanish Navy, with four masts named Blanca, Almansa, Asturias and Nautilus, names of four school ships that preceded it. It receives the name by the Spanish explorer Juan Sebastin Elcano, captain of the expedition, after the death of Fernando de Magallanes, who completed the first round the world in 1522.

The helmet was designed by the company Echevarrieta and Larrinaga de Cdiz owned by the vizcano Horacio Echevarrieta. His engineer and designer was the Bilbao and director of the shipyard between 1921 and 1931 Juan Antonio Aldecoa y Arias. The figurehead and other sizes of the ship were commissioned to the Bilbao sculptor Federico Senz Venturini. The technical plans were provided by the English house Camper & Nicholson of Southampton. For the design of the candles the English designer Nicholson was chosen. It was launched on March 5, 1927.

Its first candle was linen and was commissioned to the Ratsey & Lapthorne factory of Gosport, one of the important English firms of the moment. The candles of respect were made by the house V. Echame de Gijn. Upon delivery, the school ship had an auxiliary diesel engine of 800 horsepower (about 600 kW). The cost price of the boat amounted at that time to 8 189 532.28 pesetas.4

The vessel has two water purifiers and a 265,000 l diesel tank that feeds both its propulsion engines and its electric generators. With a load capacity of just over 600 t, you can be on the high seas for more than twenty days without having to go to port to stock up.
