About the Eagle: The ship was built as the German ship “Horst Wessel” in 1936; it served to train German sailors in sail techniques until decommissioned at the start of World War II. The vessel had anti-aircraft armament installed and re-commissioned in 1942, serving for Germany. At the end of the war, Horst Wessel was taken by the U.S. as part of war reparations. Its sister ship, the Gorch Fock is the German Navy’s Sail Training Ship today.

Find out more about the ship here.

Important: We will know the exact dock of the ship briefly before the event only, for security reasons.
