Sea Base 2013 Lottery Results

posted Mar 5, 2012, 6:10 PM by Robert Brese

The result of our Sea Base lottery was not what we had hoped for, however, we are confirmed for one (1) Out Island Adventure crew of 6 youth and 2 adults for 29 June – 5 July 2013. If you are interested, please let me know (adults and youth) by Monday, March 12. We will hold a lottery for this event if more than 8 people are interested. Our deposit is due March 17.

Our Current Out Island Reservation (Crew size 6 youth/2 adults): Kayak to Big Munson Island with all of your personal gear. Your personal gear will be stowed in a dry bag, which is checked out to you before you depart for the island, so pack light. The trip is 5.5 miles over open water, so come prepared for some great paddling! Big Munson Island is made up of high hardwood hammocks and low mangrove swamp areas. If you are expecting a South Sea Island with sparkling white sandy beaches and native girls, this is definitely not the place. You will have to wade ashore all of your food water and equipment. Depending on the wind and tide, this wading trip can be as short as 50 yards or as long as 300 yards...sometimes through floating sea grass. Once you arrive on this pristine island, it will all be worth it. You will be housed in four man backpacking tents on Big Munson Island. Your next several days will include days of fishing, snorkeling and kayaking.

Additional adventures have limited availability and we could sign up for one of them. Please let me know before Monday, March 12 if you are interested in trying to get one of these, as they are likely to go fast. Crew members received this information in an email on Mon, March 5.

If we decide to not pursue these alternate Sea Base opportunities, we will plan another Crew 1346 developed adventure for 2013. Additionally, individuals may choose to apply for one of up to 20 places on a Council contingent crew to sail a tall ship in the Bahamas. The dates and sign-up details have not been finalized for that trip.
