SEA CADETS ESCORT VIKING LONGSHIP

SEA CADETS ESCORT VIKING LONGSHIP

17/10/2014

Wallasey Unit provided their RIB to meet the longboat Draken Harold Harfagre at the Mersey Bar beacon and escort it the 18 miles back into the port. The RIB also ferried the pilot out to the longship, at 115ft the world’s largest reconstructed Viking warship, which was on a two-week visit to Wirral.

The Norse boat and crew were guests of Liverpool Victoria Rowing Club, which is based next door to the Sea Cadets’ boathouse.
As the unit and club have an excellent relationship, the rowers asked if the unit's RIB could provide cover for the longship entering and leaving Alfred Dock Birkenhead and the Port of Liverpool, recovering the pilot off the Crosby Channel on the longship’s departure for the Isle of Man

The longship’s captain, Björn Ahlander, thanked the Wallasey Sea Cadets for their help during their visit to the Wirral Peninsula.

SEA CADETS ON BOARD HMS OCEAN FOR A WEEK!

SEA CADETS ON BOARD HMS OCEAN FOR A WEEK!

02/10/2014

Sea Cadets from Teign Valley Unit took part in a training offshore voyage on HMS Ocean from Sunday 21 to Saturday 27 September 2014.

During their time on the ship, they got stuck in all aspects of the ship including shadowing air support crew on the flight deck and hanger, landing craft launching and a boat drill away from the ship. They also took part in a small arm live fire exercises, attended training presentations, learned about the use of equipment and roles in beach landings.

Sea Cadet Edward, aged 17, thoroughly enjoyed his time on HMS Ocean. He says “The trip on HMS Ocean is the most fantastic thing I have done in or out of Cadets, being treated as a member of the crew on the UK's biggest warship and flying in the new Merlin helicopters, has made me determined to finish my A levels and join the Royal Navy as aircrew”.
