Galeon Andalucia - an ancient Spanish tall ship

Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at the Ocean Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui and shows the Galeon Andalucia - a replica of an ancient Spanish tall ship.

The ship arrived in Hong Kong after sailing from Shanghai, where it was part of Spain's showcase at the World Expo.

More than 150 people spent two years to build the ship - at a cost of 6 million euros (HK$62.62 million).

Galeon Andalucia has a crew of 40. It is 52-meter-long and has six decks, three masts and seven sails.
