About

Sea Scout Ship 100 (SSS Dominion) was chartered in 2012, the 100th Anniversary of Sea Scouts.  As such, DSCN0833.JPGthat’s why we’re Ship 100.

We meet most Thursday nights at 7pm at the American Legion Post 10 in Manassas.  (Call before you visit.)

The third Thursday is Quarterdeck – our Leadership meetings.  Youth elect their leaders who then plan program.

The last Thursday is “Shore Leave” and we alternate between Service at St. Lucy’s, or “Random Fun” such as the Escape Vint Hill Program, Trampoline Dodgeball, or Laser Capture the Flag.

Our boating program is broken into four classes:

  1. Small Boat – trailered boats about 14 feet long for Koch Cup Preparation or just fun.  If there’s a ramp, we can sail.  The SSTV Centurion, SSTV Tide Breaker and SSTV Dominion all support this program.
  2. Day Cruising – sailing from Fort Washington, MD (across from Mount Vernon in Alexandria).  This is aboard the SSTV Benjamin Chase.
  3. Overnight Cruising – sailing from Baltimore or Deale, MD and out into the Chesapeake Bay.  Scouts sleep aboard the SSTV Blue November or SSTV der PeLiKan.
  4. Powerboating and Water Sports.  Our Yamaha LS2000 Jet Boat is the newest addition to our fleet.  Beginning in 2017 – we will we waterskiing, slaloming and just enjoying the water.  Scouts may earn the Powerboating Merit Badge, or Water Sports Merit Badge.  The SSTV Captain Kidd is also our safety boat for small-boat sailing.
