Tall ship Libertad

A fine picture of the Argentinian tall ship sailing out of Table Bay with shortened sail due to a stiff South Easter breeze.

ARA Libertad (Q-2) is a tall ship which serves as a school ship in the Argentine Navy. She was built in the 1950s at the Rio Santiago shipyards near Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her maiden voyage was in 1962, and she continues to be a school ship with yearly instruction voyages for the graduating naval cadets.
