Known around the globe for its award-winning spirit, CAPITAN MIRANDA serves as a training ship for the Uruguayan Naval Academy at Montevideo. Built in Spain, in 1930, the three-masted schooner was refitted and re-rigged in 1978 and logs 10,000 sea miles annually. With its colorful sunburst sails, CAPITAN MIRANDA has won the “Most Spirit” award at many previous tall ship festivals around the world. Additional information on CAPITAN MIRANDA is available here.
