Our Skills / Activities
We push the limits -- because we can. Besides, we believe it is important to learn and practice safety.
As Sea Scouts, we have more freedom to change the world, explore adventures, and refine skills beyond those allowed for younger scouts. Class III and above White Water is an example. So is our access to the USCG Aux.
We sail, kayak, and float. We paddle on our local waters using rented/borrowed boats. We target Class III white water in rivers flowing from the mountains in WV, PA, MD, and VA.
We race on SSTV Beluga. She is a Pearson 26 sailboat, sloop rigged, tiller steer, with power assist outboard. She is the perfect blend of small boat and keel boat to train Sea Scouts.
We sail SSTV Der Pelikan -- a 47 foot Mogan Ketch, center cockpit, diesel assist -- when we can borrow her.
We train aboard SSTV Michael-S when the water is too far away.
Sea Scouts are unique in that "[m]ore trust and responsibility [is] placed on a 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."
