Still More Mayport, Florida

The Colombian Navy's official good-will ship is the ARC Gloria. What an incredible sight to see the Colombian Cadets on their Navy training ship as they manned the masts on arriving at Naval Station Mayport for a scheduled port visit. The Colombian Navy tall ship ARC Gloria hosted a reception for local guests while pierside at Mayport on May 11. Mayport is the first stop on a 6-month training mission before heading to Europe and Africa. As the official flagship of the Colombian Navy, the 76-meter long, three-masted sailing ship is used to train cadets from the Colombian Naval Academy.
