Life, August 16, 1948

Although the scene on the opposite page looks as if it might be a Hollywood-conceived finale of Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore, it is actually the traditional leave-taking of the Portuguese training ship Sagres from New York City.  As the three-masted sailing vessel backed away from the pier, the most sure-footed of the 300 agile midshipmen clambered up on the spars and bowspit to wave goodby [sic] to America.  Their neat balancing act demonstrates that the Portuguese have lost none of the art of seamanship since the days of Vasco da Gama.
