Summer Run on EAGLE

Posted by Tall Ships America on September 10, 2015

Last month, Tall Ships America invited current members to apply for the opportunity to sail on board USCG Barque EAGLE as part of their twice-yearly Officer Candidate School (OCS) cruise. This collaboration with EAGLE has been going on for several years . I wrote about my own experience on EAGLE during the March 2011 OCS cruise and I am always excited to see who applies and then seeing their photos on Facebook. Occasionally, I even get some sailors to write about their experience on this blog- read Lance Fairbanks and Brian Holmen’s posts.

This time around, we had four Tall Ships America members embark on EAGLE for her two week trip down to Baltimore, MD by way of Portsmouth, VA. Kent Matsuoka wrote about his experience on his blog . Here are some photos from the other participants –

The spring OCS training run is usually in March and we hope to be able to offer this opportunity to our Tall Ships America members again (not a member? Become one now!). We will make the announcement with the requirements via this blog, Twitter and Facebook.
