The Sea Scouts Meeting for the Middle Peninsula sponsored by the Mathews Maritime Foundation scheduled for the 20th of January is being changed to February 10th from 3pm to 5pm at Gloucester High School. We will have a meeting with the registered Scouts and all new scouts that wish to register. We will have the experience of James Byers and scout son, Joshua to help getting the QUARTERDECK started at our first meeting. Hopefully, at that time the Middle Peninsula Ship will be activated by the Sea Scout Council. We are encouraging all parents of the Scouts to attend, also attending will be Adult Leaders who have registered and Adult Leaders who would like to register. Commander Justin Whitt of the ROTC program has signed up as the First Mate of the Ship and discussions on how the Ship will operate, will include parents and Adult Leaders. At this time we have 2 sailboats, a 30 foot sloop and a 32 foot sloop for use to the Ship. We also have supporters to work with our program, such as, Colonial Seaport Foundation, Mathews YMCA, Coast Guard Aux Flotilla 66 and Chesapeake Bay Paddling Company. Mathews and Gloucester Counties are both water rich and this will be an excellent opportunity for our young adults to experience the joys that being on the shores and the waters of the Chesapeake Bay can give.
Hope to see you there!
Skipper of the Sea Scout Program
