RN CCF Field Day
Last week 24 Year 10 and Lower Sixth cadets undertook afloat training on yachts and motorboats in The Solent.
Last week 24 Year 10 and Lower Sixth cadets, alongside Miss Harris, Mr Harvey and Mr Phillips, undertook afloat training on yachts and motorboats in The Solent, learning key navigation and seamanship principles aligned to the RN syllabus.
After a morning of training the yachts anchored off Seaview and the motorboats berthed in Cowes for lunch. The cadets then successfully demonstrated what they had learned in the morning session by successfully taking control and navigating us back to Portsmouth Harbour in the afternoon. We were also lucky enough to use radar to find wrecks of ships in the Solent! An excellent day was had by all.
