Name: Tall Ship El Galeo`n Returns to Ocean City !
Date: August 11, 2017 - August 27, 2017
Event Description:



El Galeon is a replica of a ship that sailed between the 16th and 18th centuries, transporting soldiers, colonists, goods, culture and ideas, and creating a centuries-old bond between America and Europe. El Galeon was a large armed vessel used in the transoceanic trade. The vessel evolved in response to Spain's need for an ocean-crossing cargo ship capable of fending off pirates. The galleon was the mainstay of the Spanish Treasure Fleets that brought Spain great wealth and world power from the New World.

El Galeon is a 170-foot, 495-ton authentic wooden replica of a Spanish galleon. It is owned and operated by the Nao Victoria Foundation of Seville, Spain. Twenty crew members are tasked with maneuvering more than 9,600 square feet of sail in the same fashion as 16th century sailors. Visitors onboard wilI explore the history and authentic interiors of a 16th century galleon while experiencing the detailed craftsmanship and grandeur of the vessel.
