I welcome positive feedback.

Hi Friends of Ship 72,

This past Sunday, Ben Davis, Purser Brandon Gardiner, Grant Putnam and Kenny Albano along with Skipper Dean, Mate Brad and former Sea Scout Jeff Putnam (now Scoutmaster of Troop 83) enjoyed a beautiful sail on the LUNA, our new vessel. We left Arey’s Pond at 7:30 AM and returned at 10:30AM. At the mouth of the river we set sail and sailed over to our mooring at Kent’s Point. We practiced picking up the mooring marker and secured the LUNA just like we practiced at the scout hut. From there we sailed little Pleasant Bay thru the Narrows into Pleasant Bay with strong winds blowing. It was a great time. The vessel handled great and is the right boat for our Ship at this time. The scouts were able to practice the skills that they had been working on for the past few weeks.

Let it be known that the LUNA, a 26 ft. O’Day donated by Mr. and Mrs. Davis of Orleans has added much to the program of THE NAUSET SEA SCOUTS. The Ship really appreciates the gift and thanks the donors amincly.

This Wednesday, October 20, 2010 we will meet at the scout hut at 7:00PM to 8:00PM. A land ship, advancement cards and cooking skills for the Turkey Shoot November 11, 12, and 13 will be our main focus.

We welcome our NEW MATE KAREN WALTHER to our ship. Karen who was brought up on the waters of Cape Cod brings many talents to the leadership staff of Ship 72. Look for her bio on our website (seascoutship72.org ) in the next weeks.


Thursday, November 4 we will have a chicken parmesan dinner at the Eastham Elks 5-8 PM.

Tickets and walk ins will be $10. More to follow.


Skipper Dean
