The Ship 6 Sea Scouts have had a busy winter and have ambitious goals for this season.

May 1, 2013   The Ship 6 Sea Scouts went on several field trips including a visit to NOAA, a trip to Webb Institute to see their yacht design towing tank and a fun ski trip to Okemo. Several scouts also achieved Sea Scout Advancement ranks. Since mid-March the scouts have been practicing their annual swim / survival skills and working on their boat “Celebration II” , a Tripp 37 racing/cruising sloop that was donated to Ship 6 in 2009. She was designed by Bill Tripp and was built in 1987 by Holby Marine. She is 37' LOA with 12.5' beam and 7' draft and sleeps 8 in cozy but comfortable single berths and meets or exceeds all USPS and USCG recommended requirements as well as YRA LIS Category A race requirements. Sea Scout Ship 6 is a co-ed program for teenagers 14 and up. Prior sailing experience is not necessary or required and beginners are welcome !  The program goal is to develop able sailors capable of handling the boat and crew as if it were their own. Individual development and team work sail side by side in Ship 6. Make no mistake about it, Ship 6 is an active sailing program and sails frequently from April to November each year, including Tuesday nights and weekends. This much sailing exposes the ship and crew to the broad spectrum of the boating environment. Ship 6 teaches the skills necessary to not merely survive in this environment but to thrive and excel in it. Ship 6 is having an open house and membership drive on Tues.May 14 at  7:30pm at St.Paul's on the Green in Norwalk
