Sea Scouts getting set for big regatta Life skills: Sea Scouts training hard for annual regatta. By JEROME GAVELLE Sea Scouts have been in full training mode in order to shine at their next regatta this week- end in Auckland. Around 26 boats crewed by Sea Scouts from around the region will participate in sail- ing, rowing and pulling a log races during the regatta. Waiheke Sea Scouts committee chairman Paul Walden says par- ticipant numbers have exploded in the past three years -- from only three members in 2008 to a hundred this year. We are facing issues due to that rise, like a lack of boats and trained parents to help out, he says. Sea Scouts are divided into three sections. Keas are five to seven, Cubs seven to 10, and Scouts are 10 to 14. Mr Walden says Wai- heke now has one of the biggest Sea Scout groups in the country. The group has two four metre kauri, clinker- built cutters and two smaller Sunburst sailing dinghies. We need to double that fleet, Mr Walden says. The organisation works on a small regis- tration fee -- $30 for a term -- and requires an active parent s involve- ment. Thirty parents are already enrolled in a training regime that covers first aid, safety, boat handling and work- ing with young children. The young sailors meet at the Shelly Beach boathouse between one and three times a week, weather and tides per- mitting. We also organise lots of camps in summer, Mr Walden says. During winter the kids keep on sailing and learn about boat maintenance. Mr Walden says: We want to make this place live and give families that are financially struggling opportunities to have their kids doing fun and useful activities, so we are planning to develop educational pro- grammes with the Con- servation Department, as well as music lessons or holiday programmes. Phone Mr Walden on 372-4406 for more information.
