As part of its 2011 international tour, the Colombian Navy’s three-masted training ship returns to London after 18 years from Tuesday 23 to Thursday 26 August 2011.

The ship, on a goodwill tour of the world, left its home port of Cartagena, Colombia, on May 13th and has since visited ports in the United States, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden and Holland. It has a crew of 163, including 81 final-year cadets from the Colombian Naval Academy and “Argos”, the ship’s navy-trained Labrador.
