On Saturday, May 28, as I was riding by the USS Hornet, I came across the 59th Annual Ancient Mariner Regatta. I was quite impressed!
This competitive series of events took place over Memorial Day weekend, from Saturday to Monday, and it is the largest of its kind in the U.S. Four hundred Sea Scouts bunked aboard the USS Hornet.
The Sea Scouts is a coed branch of the Boy Scouts of America.
I was so impressed, I put together this slideshow with some of the highlights of the weekend. Here is more information about the Alameda Sea Scouts.
