Working aloft in New London

New London — Crew members aboard the U.S. Coast Guard barque Eagle, Seamen Austin Amador, Wesley Tallman and Cord Toth, were unbending, or taking down, the main t'gallant sail Thursday while the ship was docked at Pier 7 at Fort Trumbull State Park in New London.

Eagle carries a complement of 23 sails with a sail area of 22,227 square feet. Four or five of the sails will be unbent this fall for evaluation and maintenance over the winter.
