Sydney Heritage Fleet James Craig and Esmeralda CruiseIn 2019 the tall ship Buque Escuela Esmeralda of the Chilean Navy is undertaking her 64th training cruise & will visit both Australia and New Zealand. Esmeralda is a steel-hulled four-masted barquentine with 335 crew, is 113m long and has a mast height of 48.5m.
On Thursday 1 August Esmeralda will arrive at Sydney Heads and will be escorted to Garden Island by our Tall Ship James Craig. Esmeralda is expected to fire a 13 gun salute to the Fleet Commander, consistent with past naval traditions, with a 3 inch saluting gun responding from Garden Island.
