Mission Statement

The Yankee Clipper Foundation exists to support Sea Scouting in Seattle.

About This Cause

The Yankee Clipper Foundation was created to support the Sea Scout Ship Yankee Clipper. The Yankee Clipper is one of the longest continuously active units in the Boy Scouts of America’s Chief Seattle Council. The Yankee Clipper was first chartered in 1930 and has been connected to the West Seattle Lions Club since 1933. The Sea Scouts are part of the BSA Venture program and our unit is open to young men and women between 13 and 21. The mission is to provide a fun introduction to the traditions of the sea while fostering personal responsibility, teamwork and leadership, providing exposure to careers in the maritime industry and promoting service to our community. Today we sail aboard a 44 foot on deck gaff rigged ketch whose keel was laid during WWII. She is the 4th ship to serve as "The Yankee Clipper".
