Sailor in the Sarasota Youth Sailing Camp searched Sarasota Bay for the "X" that marks the spot on July 12.
The youth sailors were on a hunt on July 12.
But not just any hunt- a treasure hunt.
Campers in the Sarasota Youth Sailing camp at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron had to follow a set of clues to get them to their final destination- a bucket of candy.
After completing a scavenger hunt on land, sailors, most who are under the age of 12, took to their sailboats and explored Sarasota Bay. They found their first clue on a whiteboard on a boat that read “What is our favorite place to be? Sail to our pirate at the land under the sea.”
Sailors then headed toward a camp counselor standing at a sandbar who gave them their next clue. Their final clue led them to the edge of Longboat Key where they found the “X” that marks the spot. Before heading back to the sailing squadron, they each enjoyed a piece of candy.
