Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Sailing the Tall Ship Seaward
Learn the ways of the bay by sailing on the beautiful tall ship Seaward. Become part of the crew as you set sails, steer, and navigate the boat under the guidance of Seaward’s professional captain and crew! You’ll also participate in learning stations to build your knowledge of bay ecology. Learn how to serve San Francisco Bay by directly experiencing it! Earn our Council’s Own Award: Girl Scouts Save the Bay’s "In the Wind" Badge or Interest Project Patch.
*In order to increase the number of youth we can serve, and to make sure there are enough chaperone tickets for every group, we ask that you please limit your scout-to-chaperone ratio to approximately 3:1.
