El Galeon will visit Brixham, where she will be open for public visitation from April 28th through May 1st at the Fishing Port.
This galleon is a faithful historical replica of the Spanish galleons that sailed the Atlantic, navigated the Caribbean, the American coasts and covered the immense Pacific route from the 16th to the 18th century. An imposing ship of 55 meters in length, six decks, made of iroko and pine wood, and almost a thousand square meters of sail area in its seven sails, built with careful historical rigor.
During her stay in Brixham, the public will be able to get on board, tour her five decks and learn about her details, how she sails, what life was like on board and the history of these ships. Part of the experience is boarding a ship that today sails the seas of the world with a young crew, who have amazing experiences on their long voyages.
