Raid 2009

Kent, WA Sea Scouts completed their second Shipyard School Raid, a 120 mile open boat race staring on Gabriola Island in British Columbia to Desolation Sound (see http://www.shipyardraid.ca/), along with Scouts from Port Townsend crewing the Longboat Bear. SSS407 is a co-ed youth rowing and sailing program, we operate a 28 foot skin on frame Umiak style boat built by our youth and adult members. Our boat is rigged with two sprit sails, made by the crew, as well as six 13 foot sweep oars hand made by the crew at the Seattle Center for Wooden Boats.
