Lifeguard Training. Sessions 2, 3, and 4 of 4. We continued training for BSA Lifeguard, American Red Cross Lifeguard, and American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguard. We completed CPR/AED training then things got crazy with the never ending deep end dives; Rescue, Rescue, Rescue drills; Sun burns; Whistles; EAP calls; the BSA swim-test parade; time afloat in row boats & canoes; resuscitation of Poor Timmy; green lake swimming at CWBS; and green slime! We are ready for the water!

Wet Week. CWBS lake training on canoe and row boats. We welcomed R on his first visit to the ship. Next time we need to get line to secure the oarlocks.

Rain drove us inside, cutting our exploration of the harbor short. We swam, shopped for food, fought for supremacy on a favorite video game, played hands of poker, and prepared Asian-style pancakes.
We bunked at the WD facility: Girls (A/E/S) took a room; P got a couch. J and his dad met us at the event. We also met future sea scout, K, and his mom.
Class B | Pancakes made with meringue and custard

Thanks to S from T671 that helped. He also had the honor of testing the life saving board while perfecting a sunburn.

About Sea Scout Ship 2 / Adventure
We are friends from the community, Some of us are dual-registered in Scouts BSA troops.
Our Chartered Organization
Ship 2 is chartered by Centerline Pelorus Consulting. Huzzah! Each adult advisor is approved by Centerline.
Sea Scouts BSA is unique in that "[m]ore trust and responsibility [is] placed on a Sea Scout than all other programs combined. We challenge them to learn, lead, and pit their skills, ability and judgement against the most dangerous environment humans dare to go."
-- Christopher Russell Davis
