Eagle and Constitution — patmorss

US Coast Guard Barque Eagle (America’s Tall Ship) was tied up bowsprit-to-bowsprit with USS Constitution (Congressional Ship of State) at the Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston, for public tours over the weekend. We attended a reception for the USS Constitution Museum on Friday evening, hosted by Eagle. It was special because these are the only two commissioned naval sailing ships in the country. Not only that, they both have their first female Captains.
