    The ship was in the Netherlands last week. Before that she participated in the Tall Ships Races 2011.

    It’s ARC Gloria, not Arc Gloria. ARC is an initialism similar to the “USS” prefacing American ship names, as such it is to be capitalized.

    It stands for Armada Nacional de la República de Colombia. National Fleet of the Republic of Colombia.
