Thank you for your translation. To all, FYI the Libertad has won the Boston Teapot Trophy 6 times since 1966. A sailing race from N. America to the UK. In 1966 she set a transalantic record for a sails only vessel and the skipper was awarded the trophy by the Duke of Edinburgh. QEII did not present the award as the skipper of the Libertad was not of high enought rank or standards for the Queen.
The Libertad is one of 10 tall ships that are sailing together the seas of Latin America to celebrate the bicentennial of the first attempts at ending the colonization (1810). Sorry for stating 9 ships below, I did not know the Portuguese ship had made it, but it did. I do not know much about ships, I only like them. So any interesting facts about them will be more than welcome.
A translation into English of the below comment would be nice. Puzzles of this type and the subject matter are of interest to me. For English speaking puzzlers...the vessel is the Libertad, a square rigged, three masted training vessel of the Argentine Navy. It has a interesting history for it?s short existance. Built in the early 50's.
