Sea Scouts & Explorer Rendezvous - Patches  


              Crescent Bay Council Sea Scouts had a distinguished
record in the region dating back to the late 1920's.
          The Scout Councils of Region Twelve (California, Arizona, Nevada & Utah) held a series of annual events, the best known
over the years as Rendezvous, Regattas and Cruises. These
events included races and other competitive events, pitting Sea
Scout Ships against each other for awards and bragging rights.
          The patches shown on this page were for events attended
by Crescent Bay Sea Scouts & Explorers.
