These details are “more realistic and can be manipulated – the modeler continues – because they are manufactured in photo-etched, except lifeboats, which are now turned wood, while in the previous Juan Sebastian Elcano scale model all these were manufactured in die-cast, so the appearance was much coarser and less trustworthy”, the professional says.

HISTORIA DEL BUQUE ESCUELA JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO

In March 5th, 1927, dictator Miguel Primo de Rivera’s daughter, Carmen Primo de Rivera, launched Juan Sebastian Elcano school ship in Cadiz. Although the first name the boat received was Minerva, which is the goddess that appears in the figurehead, by Royal Decree in 1925, was renamed with its current name, after the owner of the shipyards, Horacio Echevarria, urged to Primo de Rivera to tell the monarch Alfonso XIII that he wanted it.

As a curiosity, its first trip was from Cadiz to Malaga with the king on board the ship. Then moved to Seville, through the Guadalquivir river, where an Ibero-American Exposition was held. It also passed through the Canary Islands and then went to Guipuzcoa, where it received the combat flag. In this trial period that lasted until 1928, always in Spanish waters, Juan Sebastian Elcano traveled 5,769 nautical miles in 57 trips, at an average speed of 4.2 knots.

Just after, it undertook its first instruction cruise around the world in the opposite direction that Elcano did in the past, starting from Cadiz on August 1st 1928, where it returned on May 29th 1929. Two midshipmen have provided more packaging and history to this vessel: King Juan Carlos I, in 1958; and his son and current monarch of the Kingdom of Spain, Felipe VI, in 1987.

FEATURES OF JUAN SEBASTIAN ELCANO TRAINING SHIP

In this sense, its structure is distributed in four essential areas that are the Quarter Deck, the Forecastle, the Waist and the Poop. The back main mast, whose name is Asturias, is located on the Quarter Deck, a place where all the most relevant events tend to take place.

The two 1.45” (37 mm) cannons used for the salutes are on the Forecastle zone, where the bowsprit with the figurehead and where the workings are executed, without forgetting that just below are the lower decks, toilets and lockers. On the Waist we can meet the main front mast, called Almansa, and the foremast, called Blanca. What has been arranged in this part? The bridge, the radio and meteorological stations, the kitchen, the dining rooms, the operating room, the sick bay and the defeat rooms.

Speaking of its propulsion, Elcano has a total of 20 sails, covering a gigantic area of 3,151 square meters, however, it also has a diesel engine to be able to navigate with a power of 2,070 cv approximately, reaching speeds of up to 16.5 knots.
