Young men and women age 14 to 18 are invited to an organizational meeting of the Sea Scout ship Flying Cloud at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Astoria Yacht Club, 1555 W. Marine Drive. Parents are also encouraged to attend.

This scouting group will focus on learning to sail, boat handling, safety on the water and the skills necessary to support those activities. The Sea Scout program is part of the Boy Scouts of America, and is similar to the co-educational Venturing program.
