US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle to visit Bridgetown, Barbados

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle (WIX 327) will be making a port-of-call in Bridgetown from Monday, June 24 until Thursday, June 27.

Free public tours will be available at the following dates and times:

•           Monday (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

•           Tuesday (10 a.m. to 12 p.m.)

•           Wednesday (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

Known as “America’s Tall Ship,” Eagle is a 295-foot, three-masted barque used as a training vessel for future officers of the United States Coast Guard. It is the largest tall ship flying the Stars and Stripes and the only active square-rigger in U.S. government service.

While the primary mission is training the cadets, the ship also performs a public relations role for the Coast Guard and the United States, making calls at foreign ports as a goodwill ambassador. During this year’s cruise, Eagle will leverage its unique ability to foster international relations with critical partners throughout the Americas.
