Sea Base 2014

Trek Materials

St. Thomas, USVI Sailing Adventure

 
 

The trip is set up for 6 scouts and 2 adults at a cost of approximately $1550 (less any personal flight arrangements) with a flight departure the morning of May 24th and return evening of May 30th. Plan for on the flight entertainment (books are always good to read or small games/cards). Explore the National Park on St. John’s, just a short sail from port in the Red Hook area. Hike the trails on an historical fact finding mission and snorkel the surrounding waters. Fishing is a constant, as lines are in whenever your boat is moving, and the sailing is world class with the tradewinds blowing a pleasant 10-15 knots from the east most of the time.

Spending money should be included for any local items and meals are included. Fishing gear will be provided by the boat crew. This is an “in country” trip so no PASSPORT is required.
More details on adventure at (www.bsaseabase.org). A special SB booklet will be been passed out to all. Payment schedule: $100 deposit now, $725 by Dec 31, $725 more by Feb 1st (if flight arranged by troop). These dates allow you to participate in the Troop fund raisers (pop corn, tree collection, etc.) to build up your high adventure accounts for transfer as desired.

It will be a pack light trip and as always an official “full” uniform (scout shirt, shorts & socks) and troop red “t” shirt will be required to be worn by all scouts --- no arguments and no deviations here --- it’s the standard for this Troop. A “T” shirt size will be needed from everyone. A wide brim hat is not part of the uniform but you should have one for the sailing portion of the trip. Don’t forget your lightweight sleeping bag (blanket) and pad, rain gear and any personal snorkel/fins you may want to bring (sea base will issue sets to those who need them on check in).

All scouts should be working on or completed the First Aid, Sailing, Emergency Preparedness, and Swimming merit badges for this trip and we will complete a swim test on arrival. Adults have to be fully trained (completed ITOLS), have current Safe Swim, Wilderness First Aid, Weather Hazards and Safety a float card along with CPR/First aid certification.

The Troop standard permission slip needs to be completed and returned as well as the Troop high adventure permission slip. Other forms may be required once we get closer.
A standard physical that is less than 1 year old by June 1st , 2014 is required as well for all with copy of health insurance card. Scouts must be 14 by September 1st, “2014” or out of the eight grade in June 2014. Special medical or meal needs to be identified.
