Sea Scouts Aboard Tall Ship Coast Guard Barque Eagle -
Applications Accepted Now
Do you want the adventure of a lifetime? Apply now to sail aboard the tall ship Coast Guard Barque Eagle! The Eagle is a three-masted barque-rigged ship used to train cadets and officer candidates in the U.S. Coast Guard. The Eagle was built in Germany in 1936 and was taken as a war reparation by the U.S. after World War II. Since then the Eagle has been homeported in New London, Connecticut, the location of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
The National Sea Scout Support Committee has again made special arrangements with the US Coast Guard Academy for select Sea Scouts to join as crew aboard the Eagle during its 2013 summer cadet cruise. This opportunity is available to all Sea Scouts who desire fun, adventure, and a summer cruise to remember - you don't want to miss this chance. This year's Sunday-to-Saturday cruises are off the New England Coast and will embark on July 28 (at Boston, MA), and August 4 (at a port-of-cal to be determined).
The ideal candidate is an active Sea Scout who is at least Able rank, a leader in his/her Ship, a SEAL graduate, 16 or 17 years old, in the 10th or 11th grade at the time of application, with an interest in the Coast Guard or other military or maritime career. Remember though, many prior successful applicants have not had all of these attributes. So who should apply? Any Sea Scout who is interested!
