SEAS Bergen Monthly meeting

We meet every month at the Red Cross Building in Ridgewood, NJ.  Come join us at our monthly meetings.  Meet your fellow sailors in the flesh.  We always have a sailing oriented presentation.

This week:

Three Sea Scouts from the Orange County NY troop will join us to share information on their program and sailing experiences.  Some of you might already know this troop -- their sail boat is a neighbor of the Zephyr at Haverstraw Marina.  This scouting program is sailing based for 14 to 21 year olds, and like SEAS is concerned with waterway, environmental concerns, and safety.  Please join us for Sea Scouts' presentation followed by time for questions and answers. 

From the Sea Scout Manual: Welcome aboard—to the fun and adventure of Sea Scouts, a program combining the traditions of the past with the technology of the future. Whether you look to the sea for a career or lifelong hobby, Sea Scouts is for you.   The element of water makes Sea Scouts unique. Sea Scout units use a variety of boats, from outboard motorboats to large sailing yachts. Sea Scouts belong to a world that is distinct from anything on shore, and they have their own language and customs.   The water is not a place for the unwary, and the Scout motto, “Be Prepared,” is imperative. The challenge is taking a vessel from point A to point B while being ready for whatever may be encountered along the way. Crewing a vessel involves sharing the duties of helmsman, navigator, lookout, cook, sail handler, or engineer. Outings on a boat offer new destinations in the morning and the changing scenery of a new harbor by evening. Every event is an adventure.
