Photographer's Note

The Eagle, or USCGC Eagle (WIX-327), formerly Horst Wessel, is a three-masted barque used as a training ship-training for future officers of the United States Coast Guard. In 2011, it is one of only two active sailing vessels in the US Navy, with the USS Constitution. It is also the seventh military vessel or coastguard to bear the name Eagle since 1792.

Each summer, the Eagle cruises with United States Coast Guard Academy cadets for periods of one week to two months. These cruises fulfill several roles; the primary mission is the training of officer cadets, the second is a public relations role by participating in the Tall Ships' Tall Ships and Races around the world.(Wikipedia)
