July 31, 2017
FAMILIES flocked to see the Argentine Navy sail training ship ARA Libertad when she visited the Port of Southampton for four days.
She was open to the public for two days and during that time many local families took advantage of the chance to see the vessel which set the World Speed Record for a sailing ship crossing the North Atlantic.
"The Frigate Libertad is both our travelling Ambassador and a symbol. The visit marks another step towards reconnecting Argentina with the rest of the world, prioritising mature relationships with all countries.
“At every port she calls into, the Frigate draws thousands of visitors, including members of the Argentine community living abroad, local figures and authorities. The Libertad provides a space to celebrate the artistic, cultural, commercial, sporting, scientific and gastronomic treasures that our country has to offer," said Ambassador Carlos Sersale di Cerisano
