Hoist the sails and chart a course for adventure aboard the Eagle, the legendary tall ship sailed by the U.S. Coast Guard.
America's maritime tradition is filled with noble ships, vast riches and extraordinary tales. And though the age of the great sailing ships has long passed, the glory of this vanished era lives on in vessels like the USS Eagle, a square-rigged, steel-hulled reminder of the days when wind ruled the waves.
SAIL 2000, ABOARD THE EAGLE includes dramatic footage of many surviving tall ships making their triumphant entrance into New York Harbor in what has become an annual event, but the focus is on the Coast Guard's precious veteran. You'll go aboard the Eagle for a trip from San Francisco to San Diego, and see how the seemingly anachronistic ship is a valuable training platform that instills recruits with the value of seamanship and teamwork, along with a sense of tradition.
SAIL 2000, ABOARD THE EAGLE captures the thrill of being on the open sea reveling in the adventure and challenge of sailing.
