Sea scouting was founded in England in 1910 by the brother of Lord Baden Powell, founder
of the Boy Scout movement. The original purpose of sea scouting was to prepare young men for naval service. The idea became
part of the Boy Scouts of America in 1912.
Sea Scouting is organized to promote better citizenship and to improve members' boating
skills and knowledge through instruction and practice in water safety, boating skills, outdoor, social, and service experiences,
and knowledge of our maritime heritage.
You can learn to sail, to row, and to keep a boat in shape; you can cruise local waters
or go sailing on long cruises far from home. You can learn to Scuba dive and take care of boats. You'll be active in camping,
social events, tours, regattas, excursions, and seamanship contests. You'll also have a chance to develop maritime skills
that can lead to careers later on.
