Sea Scouts should make every effort to make 2014 the year of getting out on the water.
Small boats are a wonderful way to get Sea Scouts on the water every week. This provides an opportunity for hands-on activity, fun and character building through adventure.
The benefits of small boats are huge. Sea Scouts who are taking out a boat frequently are constantly becoming better sailors. Weekly small boat activities can also help keep Scouts excited about being a Sea Scout. This positive energy in a Sea Scout Ship can help with retaining existing Sea Scouts and recruiting new ones.
Sea Scout volunteers should help their Sea Scouts keep the Sea Promise by reviewing Safety Afloat with the youth, having a Float Plan and making sure a Tours & Activities Plan has been filed online prior to any weekend aquatic activity.
