Spectacular angle on t he top photo! I'm surprised that this beauty is part of the Portuguese Navy...it looks so unmilitary. One of a kind, I suppose? What fun it would be to do duty on this ship!

The elegance of this ship thrills me - though crewing it must be very hard work.

The Portuguese Navy trains sailors on sailing ships? Or is this for special ceremonial duties? Beautiful ship, though. Would love to see her under full sail.

I was hoping to see her bow. What a beautiful shitp! My husband says we have one like her in the U.S. that the Coast Guard sails. How nice that this skill is still being taught.
