Oxon & Bucks district regatta 2018!
On the 4th June 2018, most of our cadets went to Thames Valley Park in Reading, for the Oxon & Bucks District Regatta. A regatta holds different races for: Rowing and Paddlesport and boat handling events for: Power and Rowing.
Overall, we came:
- 1st in Powerboat Handling Competition
- 2nd in Senior (15y+) Paddlesport 500m Sprint
- 2nd in Junior (12-15y) Rowing
Our win for the powerboat handling means that our crew: Able Cadet Young, Cadet Timblick-Statham and Cadet Stacey will be going to HMS Excellent, Whale Island, Portsmouth to compete in the Area Power Handling Competition, where there are at least 7 entries to the competition.
A huge thank you to Milton Keynes unit for putting on some excellent food for us, and also a big well done to all of the cadets for how well behaved they were, not being late to any races, and being good rolemodels in general. Well done to you all! The staff, and everybody at the unit are extremely proud of the effort put in over the weekend, and we hope to see you all again next year!
