Golden Gate Area Council Sea Scout Ship Viking “100” won the National Flagship award on April 19 (press release here) and Sea Scout Ship Sea Fox “9” was recognized as part of the National Flagship fleet. The national flagship award is given to the best Sea Scout group in the country, based on the group’s accomplishments throughout the past year. This is the second time SSS Viking has won in under 10 years (the last being in 2016), out of over 300 groups across the country, which is especially unusual for an all-girls’ Sea Scouts group. The submission for this award was a video, created exclusively by the youth members.
