BoatU.S. honors California Sea Scout Ship

BoatU.S. awarded its 2009 Sea Scout Flagship Award to Ship 90, Renegade, of Newport Beach, Calif.

The award recognized the unit for excellence in program quality, youth achievement and adult commitment during 2008. It was presented Monday night during the 57th Annual Ancient Mariner Sea Scout Regatta in Alameda, Calif.

"We are particularly proud of this year's winner since Ship 90 is the third California Sea Scout unit to earn this recognition," said Bryan Dove, BoatU.S. West Coast representative, in a statement.

Like all Sea Scout units, Ship 90 uses boats, seamanship and nautical skills to develop character and leadership qualities in young people. With more than 20 youths active in the program, Ship 90 has enough crewmembers to campaign a Beckman 60 sloop, Dare, in the Southern California sailboat racing circuit as well as the smaller boats it has available in its home port at Boy Scouts of America's Newport Sea Base in Orange County, Calif.

Ship 90 and its crew of Sea Scouts logged 32 days of on-water activities last year, including sailing in the Newport-Ensenada International Yacht Race, which BoatU.S. helps sponsor. The team finished sixth in class for 2008, but won the class this year and finished fourth overall.
