The crew of SSS300 "Spartan", Alviso California, joined the amazing all-girls crew of the SSS Viking, San Francisco, California and the intrepid all-boys crew of the SSS Corsair, San Francisco, California at BSA Camp Los Mochos in Livermore, for a weekend of intense Sea Scout training.  THANKS to the Viking and Corsair or giving up a weekend to train us on the basics of Sea Scouting!

BSA Camp Los Mochos is one of the most popular BSA camps in the region.  However, in January, we had the place to ourselves.  Gorgeous blue skies made for an awesome weekend of training.
