Sea Scout Ship 100 (SSS Dominion) was chartered in 2012, the 100th Anniversary of Sea Scouts. As such, that’s why we’re Ship 100.
We meet Thursday nights at 7pm at one of our three key meeting spaces: The Dominion Boathouse, Central Park Aquatics or Manassas Airport.
The first 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 sailing program is broken into three classes:
- Small Boat – trailered boats about 14 feet long for Koch Cup Preparation or just fun. If there’s a ramp, we can sail.
- Day Cruising – sailing or powerboating from Fort Washington, MD (across from Mount Vernon in Alexandria).
- Overnight Cruising – sailing from Baltimore or Deale, MD and out into the Chesapeake Bay.
Since 2012, we have added a variety of boats to our service fleet, ranging from small FJ-class racing boats for capsize exercises to our 30ft Catalina cruiser on the Chesapeake Bay, or the Flotilla Flagship, SSTV Der PeLiKan, a 46ft Morgan Ketch which is our home-away-from-home over summer Long Cruise on odd-numbered years.
We have a strong working relationship with Boy Scout Troop 1882.
Ship 100 serves regularly at the St. Lucy Project, gathering, sorting and distributing food to pantries around the 21 counties in northern Virginia. For more information, visit the St Lucy Project.
