yes we go FLYING too!
Scout Ship 300 (SSS Spartan) was founded
in 2016 to provide Silicon Valley youth
the opportunity to develop character and
leadership through aquatic activities
along the San Francisco Bay. The ship's
name signifies the unbreakable spirit of
the Sea Scouts through their adventures on
land and water, while paying homage to the
influence of San Jose State University on
rising industries throughout Silicon
Valley. As the Chartered Organization, the
South Bay Yacht Club recognizes the
importance of training young adults to
become future leaders and has graciously
offered their facilities and resources to
support this cause.
our various activities, the SSS Spartan crew
has learned kayaking, sailing, cruising,
seamanship, and more. Our Sea Scouts have
even put their aquatic skills to the test by
participating in regattas and competing
against other Sea Scout ships in the San
Francisco Bay Area. Additionally, we serve
our local community through conservation
projects, veterans affairs, and public
events. We even offer opportunities for
local Scouting units and the general public
to kayak along the Alviso Slough, giving our
Sea Scouts the chance to teach others what
they have learned. Each of these activities
help the SSS Spartan crew grow in the ideals
of Scouting, but it's also important that
they have fun on the water!
