The training ship Cuauhtemoc of the Secretary of the Navy (Semar) of Mexico docked yesterday at the dock Bank of the Los Llanos Dock in front of the Cabildo. The imposing ship, also known as Ambassador and Knight of the Seas, arrived at the port of Santa Cruz minutes before ten in the morning, and he did so crowned by a monumental flag of Mexico, guarded by his cadets and officers from the top of their perches while he carried out docking maneuvers.
On land, the Santa Cruz City Hall Music Band performed the anthems of Spain and Mexico before the authorities boarded, to end with the Canary Islands pasodoble.
The vessel is under the command of Captain José Díaz and has on board 112 fourth-year cadets from the Heroic Naval Military School of Mexico, who put into practice “the knowledge inherent to their career, terminology and nautical knowledge, as well as of sailing,” as indicated. The Mexican ambassador to Spain, Quirino Ordaz, attended the arrival of the ship at the port of the Tenerife capital along with the honorary consul in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Ángeles Baca Herrejón. The ship, which began the Ibero-Byzantine 2023 training route on April 1 in Acapulco, can be visited from today until Monday, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
