Sea Scouts 5069

Posted on Sep 21 2015 - 10:10am

Sea Scouting, sometimes called scouting's best kept secret, is open to young men and women ages 14 through 20.  Ship 5069's Scouts sail the 28-foot sailing sloop, Highlight, at least once a week on cruises out of Milwaukee's McKinley Marina.  This summer they've taken Highlight on several weekend sails to ports on Lake Michigan.  There's no sailing experience needed to join - it's a learn-as-you go program.  Beside sailing, Scouts learn about weather, using GPS, radio communications, and lake ecology.  A number of Sea Scouts are also active members of Troops.  To learn more about Sea Scouting email Ship5069@gmail.com.  They’ll send you details about their program and arrange a time to sail or to attend a meeting.  Like them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/Ship5069 to see what the Sea Scouts are doing.
