William I.Koch International Sea Scout Applications Now Open!
With the 2012 William I. Koch International Sea Scout Cup just seven months away, applications are now open to Sea Scouts from Australia and around the World! Sea Scouts for the first time are heading to the United States of America, to the California Maritime Academy in the San Francisco Bay area of California! 2012 is the sixth year of the Koch Cup and the event, held between July 22-28, is open to young women and men who are 14 to 21 years old and registered either as Sea Scouts in the United States or in a BSA recognised Scouting Organisation in other countries. Two person teams from the US and around the world will test their sailing skills as they race in Flying Dutchman Junior (FJ's) sailboats.
Scouts have the unique opportunity to participate in the same seas that will host the best sailors in the world for the prestigious 2013 America's Cup Race. Prizes will be based on Sea Scouts' sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship and Winners earn their place in history by having their names permanently engraved on the finest youth sailing trophy in the world!
