Troop 107 from Naperville Il on the Sea of Abaco

The great expanse of various terrains across the globe and all the beautiful waters in-between holds a world of wonder for mankind. One of the most colorful is the Bahamas right here in our backyard. The Sea of Abaco holds a world of discover for the boys who brave Bahamas Sea Base High Adventure Trips. This week it was so for Troop 107 from Naperville Il a group of 10 .

With the aid of a few great leaders the boys arrived Viento Azul excited and ready for what was ahead which was a mystery for them all. One leader had heard from a participant how great the adventure trips are over 20 years ago, when we was only dreaming of having boys which made this trip extra special.

Hands on experience is the best teacher for sailing. The boys hoisted the sail , took the helm while learning to tack and keep a steady course. Night watch gives them responsibility and a closeness to nature. When it rains it’s time to secure the hatches, if we drag anchor its time to wake captain!

Just after colorfully painted sunsets, the stars were brilliant. Then the bright orange ball of the moon would take over the sky leaving its silvery path upon the water as it rose high above.

The scouts were absolutely excited coming from the mid -west to find and open a coconut. Since hurricane Dorian ravished the islands it has become a tall order but success was had. With the sun blazing down the coco water was oh so refreshing and the white meat in the center was fresh and delicious!

The sunken barge off of Settlement Harbor is an under-water playground of eclectic debris Besides the old barge is a golf cart , a toilet, various sunken hurricane items, pilings and even a pam tree void of coconuts. It is also home to many fish who swim in and out of shanty homes. All of which is fascinating to the scouts.

As with every group new friends are made and friends grow closer. It is a mix of emotion as the week comes to a close. The thoughts of continuing on and sailing more is a desire in the heart verses looking forwards to home, family and a fresh shower which is the most sought after first desire.

Log book entry from a scout:
“ Last night we had a very starry night, and I felt an immense feeling of calm and satisfaction to a love I haven’t felt in a while. That along with the experiences we’ve had, are going to be unforgettable.”

It has been a pleasure to meet and spend time with Troop 107. Until we meet again, may the wind be in your favor and may you miss, not one, beautiful thing in your path.
