The 295-foot United States Coast Guard Barque EAGLE,  the flagship of the U.S. Coast Guard, is returning to Newport.

As part of its OCS Fall Cruise, the EAGLE will depart New London, Connecticut on September 17 with candidates from the Officer Candidate School, according to its schedule.

The EAGLE is scheduled to arrive in Newport on Friday, September 23, and depart for New London on Monday, September 25. The EAGLE is scheduled to arrive back in New London on Saturday, October 1.

The EAGLE serves as a training vessel for cadets at the Coast Guard Academy and candidates from the Officer Candidate School. The EAGLE is the only active-duty sailing vessel in America’s military, and one of only two commissioned sailing vessels, along with the USS Constitution.

On June 24, 2022, CAPT Jessica Rozzi-Ochs became the 30th skipper of EAGLE, becoming the first woman to take the helm, according to a Facebook post from the United States Coast Guard Barque EAGLE.

In past visits to Newport, the EAGLE has been open for public tours. According to the EAGLE’s website, scheduled tour times are released to local media before each port call.
