Here are 3 training videos for events at the Ancient Mariner Regatta. There are several Ships attending this year who have never been so to give them a helping hand these reference videos were made.
Semaphore is a Team Event where 4 Scouts will rotate sending and receiving code signals. Be sure to be precise in your arm positions as many signals can be easily mixed up.

Bosun’s Chair is a Team Event where 4 Scouts race to tie a french bowline and be hoisted up to a block. Always push yourself in this event as your arms will only be tired for a little bit, but your time is written down.
Drill is a Team Event where 9 Scouts execute the commands of Close Order and Marching Drill. Attention to detail and perseverance are both essential to this event.
