The San Francisco Sea Scouts invite all Bay Area 13- to 15-year-olds and their families to a day of sailing, rowing, free food and knot tying. They’re holding an open house on August 31. Stop by anytime between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. this Saturday. No previous boating experience is required. Do dress warmly!
The Sea Scouts include teenage boys and girls. They meet year round. The cost is just $10 a month. They sail, row and compete against teenagers from all over California, go on overnight trips and cruises, and learn how to maintain wooden boats. The flagships of the San Francisco Sea Scouts are the open wooden sailing whaleboats Corsair and Viking.
Find their headquarters, and the open house, at 3500 Van Ness Ave. in Aquatic Park. RSVP for the event at www.seascout.family/openhouse.
