The Coast Guard tall ship "Eagle" is coming to New Bedford! The 295-foot-long vessel will visit New Bedford on August 10 through 13. Public Affairs Officer Linda Meredith and Marine Safety Officer Jeffrey Santos of the Coast Guard Auxiliary join Jim Phillips this week on Townsquare Sunday to discuss the history of the "Eagle," and its four-day stay in the Whaling City. The vessel was constructed in Germany in 1936, and is the largest tall ship in US Government service.

The ship leaves early Monday morning, August 13.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
