The crew of the Coast Guard Tall Ship Eagle (WIX 327) during the first part of their 2019 summer tour off the coast of Europe ... with visits to England, Norway, Germany, and Denmark.
Built in Germany in 1936 and re-commissioned by the United States at the close of World War II ... the 295-foot Barque Eagle is the flagship of the U.S. Coast Guard. She serves as a training vessel for cadets at the Coast Guard Academy and candidates from the Officer Candidate School.
The Eagle is the largest active tall ship flying the Stars and Stripes ... and one of only two commissioned sailing vessels along with the USS Constitution.
