24 Hour Sail

24 Hour Sail

4th/5th May 2013

Once again Maldon Sea Cadets will be attempted to sail a dinghy a full 24hours, through the night.

They used all their sailing skills to continue sailing the bosun without capsizing, even when exhausted.  The other competition gave them a challenge on the water, keeping them motivated and alert so they could ensure that they kept clear of any obstacles and avoided collision. The night shift was a challenge with just a torch and their wits to keep them on track!  All cadets, although tired, had great fun and some worthwhile experience.

Thank you for your support!! =]

24 Hour Sail

24 Hour Sail

5th May

 

A small team of selected cadets woke up early to attempt an enduring test of their stamina – the 24 hour sail…   The cadets had to race round a selected route as many times as they could in the 24 hours.  This entailed sailing for long hours in the cold wet weather, making as few changes as possible to ensure a keeping within pole position.   The cadets had to be completely self-sufficient (so no popping to the chippy!!) and had to be ready to sail at any time rotating the few cadets allowed in each team and be prepared for any weather in the forever changing conditions – whilst making the most of being off water (getting some shut eye and feeding their tummies!! )  Well done to all the cadets who attended this hugely challenging competition!

 
Advex Competition

21st April

Many Sea Cadet units came to our unit to partake in an advex competition.  They had to navigate their way through various check points, getting their next destination at the next check point, and so requiring quick thinking to stay ahead.  After a nights camp they then had to navigate their way back to the unit to try to attempt various  evolutions, such as first aid challenges, obstacle courses and archery.  Well done to all those who attended this physically and mentally challenging competition!!
