The Mexican Navy's tall ship Cuauhtémoc sails into the fog on San Francisco Bay during a visit in 2005. Cuauhtémoc, whose name means "eagle that swoops down over its prey" was the last emperor of the Aztecs. Built in 1982 at the Celaya Shipyards in Bilboa, Spain, the Cuauhtémoc has a spar length of 270 feet, draft of 17 feet 1 inch, beam of 39 feet 4 inches, and a weight of 1800 tons. Since her first transatlantic journey in 1982 she has sailed over 400,000 miles and in 1990 the vessel made a circumnavigation. Photographed 8/05
