What is Sea Scouts?

You can learn to sail, to row, and to keep a boat in shape; you can cruise local waters or go sailing on long cruises far from home. You'll be active in camping, social events, tours, regattas, excursions, and seamanship contests. You'll also have a chance to develop maritime skills that can lead to careers or a lifetime hobby.

Sea Scout Ship 280 has access to multiple boats so you can learn how to sail. During the boating seasons, every member has a chance to try his hand at the tiller, to trim the sails, and all members are taught safe and proper methods of handling boats. Sea Scouts also learn the meaning of buoys and lights, how to take advantage of wind and tide, and how to drop anchor or approach a dock. Day, weekend, and long cruises are held for all ship members.

Friendship

When asked, most Sea Scouts say the best part of Sea Scouting was the friends they made, from crewmates they saw regularly, to competitors from rendezvous, to foreign Scouts they met at regattas.

Service

Scouts will learn to lead others and give back while serving the community, nation, and fellow Scouts because service is a core principal of Sea Scouting.
