William M. Minto Sea Scout Rendezvous

End of summer break is a time for Sea Scouts in the Southern Region to gather for the annual William M. Minto Rendezvous - sponsored this year by SHAC Fleet and hosted at Bovay Scout Ranch. The William M. Minto Invitational Rendezvous was started in 1991 as a venue for Sea Scout ships across the Southern Region to compete. The competition includes more than 20 events that test the ship’s teamwork, training and preparation in a variety of nautical related events. The Minto Rendezvous follows a traditional format – most competitive events reflect skills youth must know for sailing and advancement; however, other events require more laughter, luck and perseverance than ability. True fun begins after the day’s competition is over with fun evening events and fellowship with new and old friends.  A boarding manual with registration details will be available soon. We hope that the Minto Rendezvous is an experience your youth will enjoy and want to repeat every year.
