Atop the Eagle

Crew members in the Operations Department aboard the U.S. Coast Guard barque Eagle test the foremast set sails on Thursday in New London after the foremast was overhauled last fall. The Eagle is a three-masted sailing barque with 21,350 square feet of sail that was built in 1936. The Eagle's training schedule for 2014 includes cruises to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. The ship will also cruise to Baltimore in September for the 200th anniversary of the "The Star-Spangled Banner."
