We see her quite often in Livorno, embarking or disembarking part of her young crew, and it was one of the first ships ever posted on this blog in the early 2009.

These "old fashioned" ships are so fascinating!

Surprising that this beautiful square rigged ship is only 34 years old. Most of the rest of the square rigged training ships are a century old or more. It is a beauty. Your photos do it justice.
