Eagle Arrives in Port Everglades

Thursday, June 20, 2002
The Coast Guard Cutter Barque Eagle will arrive in Port Everglades Friday at noon. The Eagle began its seven-day trip to Dania, Fla., after departing Nassau, Bahamas, June 14. The Eagle will be visiting Port Everglades as part of a summer training mission for training cadets before returning to its homeport of New London, Conn. As the flagship of the U. S. Coast Guard Academy, the Eagle’s primary mission is to serve as a platform for training Academy cadets in the fundamental disciplines of seamanship. Through practical application, cadets learn navigation, engineering and ship maneuvering. In addition, they set more than 22,000 square feet of sail and control more than 20 miles of rigging lines while under way. The Eagle offers future officers the opportunity to put into practice the navigation, engineering and other professional theories they have previously learned in the classroom. Upperclass trainees exercise leadership and service duties normally handled by junior officers, while underclass trainees fill crew positions of a junior enlisted person. Approximately 900 men and women attend the Academy, all of whom sail at one time or another on America’s only active duty square-rigger. Recreational boaters are advised to maintain appropriate distance from the vessel due to security zones.
