Barque Eagle



Come one, come all to welcome Captain Eric Jones, Coast Guard Academy cadets and officer candidates of the Barque Eagle as they arrive in Waterford, Ireland. Waterford is the first port of call for the Barque Eagle as it departs for its Summer Training Cruise on May 7, 2011 and provides its crew with a leadership experience at sea that’s beyond compare. The Barque Eagle, celebrating its 75th anniversary, was built at the Blohm and Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany in 1936 and commissioned as Horst Wessel. It is one of three sail-training ships operated by the pre-World War II German Navy. The ship was taken as a war reparation by the United States at the close of World War II, re-commissioned as the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle and sailed to New London, Connecticut, which has been its home port ever since.

The Barque Eagle will arrive on Friday, May 27th and you’re invited to discover the wonders of Waterford with the crew before they depart for Hamburg, Germany on May 30th. Tenon Tours has created a package for your stay in Waterford with additional options for excursions. Your experience in the Emerald Isle does not have to end when the cadets depart! You may choose to return to Dublin; opt for an escorted tour to the west of Ireland; or create your own adventure with a self-drive package. Please review the information to make your selections or contact us directly to create a customized package for yourself or your group.
