America's Tall Ship to visit Morehead City this spring
PORTSMOUTH, Va. The Coast Guard Cutter Eagle, America's Tall Ship and seagoing classroom for future officers in training, is scheduled to arrive March 26 in Morehead City, N.C.

From its homeport in New London, Conn., the cutter will sail along the eastern seaboard and transit through Morehead as part of its spring training for Coast Guard and National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) officer candidates.

Eagle's spring deployment is the first underway training for 2014 after the cutter completed a three and a half month dockside maintenance and a foremast overhaul at the Coast Guard Yard facility in Baltimore, Md.

At 295 feet in length, the Eagle is the largest tall ship flying the stars and stripes and the only active square-rigger in U.S. government service.

Constructed in 1936 by the Blohm and Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany, and originally commissioned as the Horst Wessel by the German Navy, the Eagle was taken by the United States as a war reparation following World War II.

With more than 23,500 square feet of sail and six miles of rigging, the Eagle has served as a classroom at sea to future Coast Guard officers since 1946, offering an at-sea leadership and professional development experience.

A permanent crew of seven officers and 50 enlisted personnel maintain the ship and guide the cadets and officer candidates through an underway and in-port training schedule, dedicated to learning the skills of navigation, damage control, watchstanding, engineering and deck seamanship.

The cutter Eagle is scheduled to be moored in Morehead City March 26 - 30.

To follow the Eagle's adventures, check their 2014 schedule and visit their Facebook page.

It will be good to have a truly Tall Ship in MHC.

And having some more Coast Guardsmen/women here would be an Honor.

AND, it will be one more Tall Ship than was here during the tall ship not so good thinggy a couple of years ago. hmph

I was stationed on the Eagle in 1998 for a summer tour...nothing like climbing the rigging in a 20 knot breeze in the middle of the night!
