Hi I’m Misha and I’m from Iron Duke Sea Venturers in Nelson. I’ve been in scouting since I was a cub and now I’m a venturer. My favourite part about venturers is all the camps and outdoors activities we do. Some of my hobbies are high jumping and flips.

Hi, my name is Leon and I am currently a member of Owairaka Sea venturers. I have been in sea scouts for over 10 years, with the first 7 of those being spent at Aotea Sea Scouts. What I have loved about my time in sea scouts is the tight companionships I’ve formed at regattas and other events as well as the many adventures I’ve had along the way. What I hope to bring to the regatta as a member of the duty watch is a stronger youth leadership presence and a more enjoyable environment for everyone.

Hi I’m Jasmin, and I’m a venturer at Saint James Sea Scouts in Wellington. I joined scouting in 2017, and I really enjoy the hands-on activeness of sailing as a sea scout. I’ve got to know lots of people through scouts, and this has helped me grow in confidence. I wanted to be a part of the regatta duty watch to help other scouts and venturers enjoy and make the most out of this national regatta.
