To the sea!

Satahanka is a seascoutcamp and therefore sailing is an important part of the programme. All scouts make a daylong trip with one of the taller trainingvessels to the seas. Vessels have arrived here as far as the easternmost Finland. Sail and navigationtraining are of course the top activities in the camp and especially that here it is possible to try how it fells to sail with some other boat than the one of our own troop..
