The Mexican Tall Ship Cuauhtémoc, commanded by Captain Roberto Gonzalez Lopez, visited Monterey August 4 through August 6, 2005. The Cuauhtémoc, known as the Ambassador and Gentleman of the Seas, is a tireless navigator having trained twenty-one generations of officers and has sailed over 400,000 nautical miles.
Through almost two decades, its accomplishments have been acknowledged and praised by other navies in the world. The ship has participated in important regattas like the Colón Regatta, the Cutty Sark Tall Ships’ races, and the Centenary of Osaka Port Modernization Regatta, among others. The sail training ship Cuauhtémoc is undoubtedly, a living symbol of the sailor spirit that characterizes the personnel of the Mexican Navy, who are always ready to serve their country.
