FORMER SEA CADET ZARA WINS RYA YACHTMASTER OF THE YEAR 2016

12/01/2017

Former sea cadet Zara Roberts has been awarded the prestigious RYA Yachtmaster of the Year 2016.

Zara, who learned to sail, windsurf and powerboat with Scarborough Sea Cadets Unit, was presented with the award on Wednesday 11 January at the 63rd London Boat Show at ExCeL, London, by HRH The Princess Royal.

RYA Yachtmaster of the Year is awarded to someone who possesses outstanding skills and knowledge as a skipper and will have successfully demonstrated their expertise and experience during their RYA Yachtmaster exam.

Speaking about her achievement, Zara, 30, who runs a nutritionist and personal-training business, said: “Passing the Yachtmaster exam means the world to me. It was a really pivotal moment in my life. I thought I had done well, but the weather was awful and it was mentally taxing, so I had no idea I’d done that well.

“I’m so fortunate to enjoy what I do, and I hope this award will inspire others to get out on the water.”

CADET 1ST CLASS JASMINE IMPRESSES IN EPISODE ONE OF BEAR GRYLLS SURVIVAL SCHOOL

09/01/2017

Cadet 1st Class Jasmine enjoyed an exciting start in CITV's Bear Grylls Survival School, which got under way at the weekend.

The 13-year-old, who attends Richmond Unit, is taking part in series two of the programme, which teaches young people survival skills.

In the first episode, which was aired on Saturday at 8.30am, Jasmine endured physical challenges and had to eat food many would consider unsavoury. She also had to help light a fire and set up somewhere to camp for the night.

During the show, which was filmed over two weeks, the young people had to give up all technology, which Jasmine admitted she would find hard. "I use my phone 24/7. I am constantly texting people, constantly getting messages, constantly checking my phone," she said in the first episode.

If you missed the programme, you can watch it back here: http://www.itv.com/hub/bear-grylls-survival-school/2a4050a0013. It is shown every Saturday at 8.30am.
