Norfolk, Va. - The Mexican tall ship ARM Cuauhtemoc has pulled into Norfolk for a visit once again.

The ship, commissioned under the Mexican Navy, sails with 55 officers, 74 cadets and 120 enlisted crew members.

She participates in worldwide tall ship events while teaching the essential elements of seamanship and navigation, taking more than one hundred cadets to sea for each of its cruises.
