Photos: Coast Guard Cutter ‘Eagle’ In Bermuda

July 4, 2015

The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle arrived in Bermuda today [July 4] as part of its 2015 cadet summer training deployment, mooring along Front Street in Hamilton.

The Eagle will be open for free public tours on the following dates and times:

  • Saturday, July 4 – 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 5 – 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Monday, July 6 – 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

At 295 feet in length, the Eagle is the largest tall ship flying the stars and stripes and the only active square-rigger in U.S. government service. It was constructed in 1936 by the Blohm and Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany, and originally commissioned as the Horst Wessel by the German Navy. The United States took the Eagle as a war reparation following World War II.

      We should? What is the rule concerning flying the host countries’ flag higher?

        Well, there’s no way Bermuda could match that American flag in terms of size, it’s enormous.
