NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - The Coast Guard Barque Eagle has sailed back into its homeport after spending six months in dry-dock in Baltimore for extensive maintenance.

The Day reports (https://bit.ly/1DYJUXI ) the ship and its crew arrived in New London Friday as part of the Coast Guard’s 2015 cadet summer training program.

They have been in Baltimore for a service life extension project that will continue at the end of the summer. During the summer, Eagle will be making stops in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Boston and other locations, with 250 people onboard.

A Coast Guard Academy cadet says he and other members have been bringing cadets from the Class of 2018 on the ship and helping them get situated.

The ship’s food service specialist says they will be bringing around $80,000 to $100,000 worth of food for the crew.
