The USCG EAGLE is the USA square rigger.
She is a reminder of our sea going past- The EAGLE as represented today was originally the German vessel "Horst Wessel". She had five sister ships and was built in 1936. The EAGLE is 295' long the beam is 39.37' and she carries 22000 sq. feet of sail. Though she is a square rigger she is a very modern sailing ship at the peak of sailing technology. Each cadet that passes through the academy serves on the EAGLE. The EAGLE is very special, it is our tall ship. This EAGLE Half Hull was commissioned by the USCG Academy for permanent placement in Chase Hall. It is from the Capt. J. Peter Jones Collection.
