On March 20th, via a virtual event, the National Quarterdeck Bridge of Honor announced this year’s recipients of the National Flagship and National Flagship fleet awards for specific Sea Scout Unit types. The National Flagship and National Fleet awards have been given out since at least the 1940’s to recognize excellence in a Sea Scout program. The top ship receives the National Flagship designation and a few select worthy ships are also designated as part of the Fleet.
Nevada Area Council’s Ship 314 chartered by Sierra Diving Center was recognized as being among the top SCUBA diving ships in the country with its selection as part of the National Flagship Fleet. The National Flagship SCUBA ship was from Wisconsin, and the two other Fleet recognitions being for our own Ship 314 from Reno, Nevada and a ship in the Las Vegas Area Council.
Ship 314 engages in SCUBA diving at Lake Tahoe and the surrounding areas, and also has a varied program of small boat sailing, marksmanship, rafting, and service.
Sea Scouting is a coed program open to all 14-20 year olds who wish to start or continue their adventure in Scouting and love getting in, on, or under the water.
