The Sea Scout ships in the fleet run by the Chief Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts of America are joining the fishing boats arriving home from Alaska to celebrate Fishermen’s Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 4. It will take place at Fishermen’s Terminal (1900 W. Nickerson St.), from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition to enjoying the activities of the fishing festival, the Sea Scout ships will participate in their Fall Rendezvous activities on the docks for all the visitors to see. The Scouts will conduct friendly competitions between ships and even let visitors try their hand at Ring Buoy Toss and Survival Suit race.
Rain or shine, the ships — SSS Yankee Clipper, SSS Propeller and SSS Argo — will pull into the wharf at Fishermen’s Terminal on Saturday, Oct. 4, at 10 a.m., with demonstrations starting at 11 a.m.
Sea Scouting is open to all young men and women from ages 14 to 21. Those interested in learning more about Sea Scouting, boats, sailing and navigation are invited to stop by the Fall Fishermen’s Festival to tour the ships, learn a few knots, participate in fun activities and talk to Sea Scout youths and leaders about how to get involved.
