The "Primera Gazela," now called "Gazela Philadelphia" is the tall ship that my father-in-law bought, restored, and sold to the Philadelphia Maritime Museum. It is one of the few old square-riggers left in the World. It's a beautiful boat.

Right after it was completely restored the first time, it was presented at the Tall Ships Sail at the Bicentennial in 1976 in New York. It is the boat that the Rumanian boat crashed into during this event. Then, it had to undergo more massive repairs.

Glad to see that you are going to see this beautiful boat.

What an interesting family connection! This is probably a very dumb question, but have you had the opportunity to sail on her with your family? What a thrill that would be!
