Coast Guard Cutter Eagle departs Baltimore Harbor

BALTIMORE – The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle departed Baltimore Harbor at about 10 a.m., Sunday, continuing its cadet training cruise on the way to its next OpSail 2012 port of call.

The 295-foot cutter Eagle, America’s Tall Ship, is scheduled to rejoin the fleet in Boston June 30.

The remaining OpSail 2012 fleet will continue to participate in the Sailabration and offer public ship tours in Baltimore Harbor until the fleet’s departure Tuesday, at 7 a.m.
