TO WHOM IT CONCERN
Greetings from Buenos Aires, Argentina !!!!!
My name is Jorge A. Kaniak. I lead the Rover section ( 18 -24 years) of
the Sea Scouts with base in the Olivos Port, in Buenos Aires Province,
The name of our group is " Tte. de Nav�o Pedro Etchepare", founded 60
years ago, by anglo - argentine citizens, counting today with more than
70 young boys and girls.
As this group is the only one with naval orientation, we belong to the
scouts of argentina, and have to fulfill their requirements and
programmes, all of them not contemplating sea scouting at all. just to
give an example, since the different existing fractions have joined in
"scouts de argentina", we have problems to be recognized as sea scouts
and our uniforms are not totally accepted (blue for work, white for
I have personally joined this seagroup two years ago, since my kids have
entered the cub section. as a former instructor in the polish scout
movement in argentina, i have gladly accepted the offer from our group
leader to create the rover section, non existing section until july 99.
I have seen and I�m very surprised that, even this group is called sea
scouts, sea instruction is very poor, basically because of the lack of
ships and experimented seaman or sea instructors in the group. We�re now
looking for and it is our goal for the coming year to count with an
instructor and organize the crew and the group as real sea scouts. just
like it has to be.
Have visited your website, the one is really amazing, and one of the
most impressing things is how well organized are the sea scouts in
america. on the other hand, full information is close to the fingers and
lot of things to learn and transmitt.
regarding information, i have printed several pages, those i feel will
be usefull to our project. unfortunatelly, other information is not
available, and had problems to reach the website seascouts.org.
[Seascout.org was basically unavailable for 36 hours but is now back in
business. -- Bruce]
thus, i would much appreciate if its possible for you to share some more
information. specifically, we�re interested to count with the following
literature. if you can share this with us, would be great.
1. sea scout manual No. 33239A
2. handbook for skippers No. 3233
3. sea scout officer specialized training instructors guide No. 23-339
the aim of counting with this literature is to learn, adapt and create
our own manuals and handbooks, as this type of literature doesnt exist
Please let us know if this is possible, and feel free to get in touch
and require all information from us you need, from:
