Sea Scout Ship 125:
December 27, 2017
On Saturday, January 13, 2018, Germantown’s Sea Scout Ship 125 will be co-sponsoring Quarterdeck/Introduction to Leadership Skills for Ships (ILSS) training with other Ships in the National Capital and Baltimore Area Councils. This training is a prerequisite for Sea Scouts hoping to participate in Sea Scout SEAL training and/or National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).
AS A SPECIAL TREAT, this training will be conducted aboard the NS Savannah, the first nuclear-powered merchant ship! Read more about the venue at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NS_Savannah.

Sea Scout Ship 125 is looking to fill several youth leadership positions and to introduce more Scouts to sailing. We meet Sunday evenings at the Greenfield Lighthouse in Germantown, and are just beginning our winter sail training program for new sailors.
Ship 125 has boats, ranging from a Sunfish daysailer and a trailerable trimaran to 27′ and 30′ sailing yachts with overnight accommodations. We can teach small craft sailing and other skills to help Scouts earn merit badges, or we can help a troop organize a sailing adventure, fishing trip, or other activity on the water. We offer an opportunity to bring more variety to your troop’s programming.
Members of Ship 125 are happy to meet with Boy Scout units and explain what Sea Scouting has to offer them. For more information, contact Paula Sind-Prunier, Skipper, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
