The Spanish navy’s sail-training ship Juan Sebastian de Elcano approaches the Claiborne Pell Bridge on Sunday, 2 July 2000, during the Parade of Tall Ships in Narragansett Bay off Newport, Rhode Island. The 3,240-ton, four-masted topsail schooner, which carries a crew of 224 plus eighty cadets, has been in service since 1928. Visible in the background, on Coasters Harbor Island just forward of the ship’s bow, is Hewitt Hall of the Naval War College.
