LAMI Sea Scouts Ship 1992 – TopSailors/Youth Crew

Located in San Pedro, California, Ship 1992 is a Sea Scout Ship chartered by the Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI). Our program is available to all youth between the ages of 14 and 21.

  • We get together every Sunday afternoon, where we learn leadership and maritime skills, either sailing aboard the LAMI Brigantine Tall Ships Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson or participating in water sports such as small craft boating, kayaking, paddle-boarding and more.

Our Sea Scouts/Youth Crew program provides alternative access to sailing aboard our fleet of small sailboats, Shazam and Le Petite Sayula. This allows youth volunteers more access to sailing as well as providing them more exposure to sailboats and boating in general, bolstering a deeper understanding, interest, and confidence towards sailing and sailboat handling. These skills are transferable experiences when sailing aboard other boats.

Sea Scouting is an inclusive co-ed program offered by BSA Scouts America for young people. The program operates through Sea Scout units known as Ships which are made up of youth and advisors, just like you!

Being a Sea Scout offers countless opportunities and exciting challenges that you won’t find anywhere else. It is a place where you can grow, learn, find adventure, and build lifelong friendships.

Too Young for Sea Scouts?

If you are 11 to 13, we still want you to have the opportunity to experience ocean adventures!
