SF Bay Arrival

Per Latitude38:

EDITOR'S NOTE: Speaking of tall ships, the spectacular three-masted barque Gloria, which is the Colombian Navy's official tall ship, is expected to pass beneath the Golden Gate between 7:00 and 7:15 a.m. this Friday, then dock at San Francisco's Pier 17, where she will be available for daytime tours until her departure on the 29th. At 212 feet in length, she is one of the world's premier Class A tall ships. Her square-rigged sailplan allows her to carry 15,000 square feet of sail.
With any luck, spectators during her arrival will get to see more than 100 cadets scramble up the rigging and straddle the yardarms as they stow the square sails, then stand atop the yardarms in a dramatic harbor salute.
