AMR Competition 2013:  MARINERS TAKE FIRST PLACE AND
 RETURN HOME WITH AMR’s ULTIMATE TROPHY: “GREAT REPUBLIC”

Mariner A and K got Sloop. Mariner T got Schooner. Mariner Q (Boatswains team) got Clipper and Great Republic which means they were the top ship there. Great republic is having Clipper class and having satisfied in all ship and team events and gotten zero demerits. Also, being the top ship to do so based on how they place in events. We are the first ship to receive this trophy since it was created three years ago.

Rendezvous Competition 11/29-12/1/12

Each season culminates in a weekend long competition with other Sea Scouts from California. This is a highly anticipated event by our youth and something for which they train all season. In the fall we attend the Southwestern Rendezvous event in Port Hueneme and in the spring we attend the Ancient Mariner Regatta (AMR) in Alameda ( San Francisco).  Lifelong friendships and memories are formed at Rendezvous and AMR.

WOW,  the results of the Rendezvous competition 2012 were incredible!  Aside from the fact that we had a wonderful time, lets look at the result of weeks of hard work practicing maritime events.   All three teams were fantastic.  One of our teams with pogeys went way beyond by winning “Clipper”.  This is an incredible accomplishment.

Our Boatswain’s team was probably the most impressive team at the competition.  One of only two teams to win at the top level of “Windjammer”, we are waiting for confirmation that we won “Golden Windjammer”.  The fact that we do not know for sure is the result of the failure of an adult judge to turn in the results card for drill.  Recalculating by scoring is expected to take some time.  In the mean time lets continue to cheer our impressive Mariners and their leaders.
Drill was an event in which we placed first.  Placing first placed us in the drilloff.  We out scored all other teams in the drilloff but in the process of presenting an incrediblely humourous roultine we ran over time.  The consensus was that the acceptance by the crowd of the comedy act was worth the time over run.
Our Boatswain’s team not only placed first in drill but also in the scuttlebutt event.  We did not win the scuttleoff with a time of i minute 5 seconds but it was very close to the winning time of 55 seconds.  It is not often that the Mariners place in both Drill and Scuttleoff.    The Boatswain Team ran up an impressive score of 88% in Ship Events and 17 satisfactory Team events out of 18 possible.  Wow!
