Argentine Navy Training Ship Libertad Visits Miami

MIAMI – The Argentine navy’s training ship, Libertad, arrived Wednesday in Miami on its first visit to the South Florida city since 1999.

The ship will host a ceremony marking Argentine Independence Day on Thursday.

The four-mast, 103-meter (338-foot) vessel did not enter the port with its sails fully unfurled. Instead, it was assisted by tugboats because PortMiami’s regulations do not permit sailing maneuvers for safety reasons.

Argentine Consul Martin Giusto, along with diplomats, business leaders and a good number of Argentine citizens, some of them with relatives among the crew, waved flags welcoming the Libertad, which arrived from Charleston, South Carolina, where it participated in the Tall Ships Festival.

Miami is the fourth port call for the frigate on its 46th six-month training tour under the command of Capt. Fernando Emir Maglione.

The ship sailed from Buenos Aires on March 25, carrying more than 300 crewmembers, including 60 coast guard sailors.

The Libertad will depart from Miami on Sunday and sail across the Atlantic Ocean, making its first European stop in the Netherlands.

“The frigate Libertad is a great Argentine ambassador,” Giusto told EFE.
