CVQO Westminster Awards

CVQO Westminster Awards

On Tuesday 3 - Friday 6 April, the annual CVQO Westminster Awards selection event was held in the Quantock Hills of Somerset. The event pits the 40 nominees from across the Cadet Forces against eachother in a series of tasks. Sea Cadets were delighted to have nine participants. 

These annual awards recognise selfless, determined individuals who have overcome adversity or a personal challenge or have gone the extra mile to help others. The finalists took part in a week of challenges and tasks in mixed weather conditions, but all set about them with enthusiasm and vigour. The sea cadets now wait to hear which of them have made it into the final lucky 10 who will go to South Africa in the summer.

 

 

2018 OFFSHORE SEASON GETS UNDER WAY

2018 OFFSHORE SEASON GETS UNDER WAY

Offshore season is well and truly under way, with the inaugural voyage of 2018 kicking off last month.

This year, our two new yachts - TS City of London and TS Sir Stelios - will be out on the water, alongside our flag ship, TS Royalist, and power vessels, TS Jack Petchey and TS John Jerwood.

An offshore trip is a fantastic opportunity for young people to travel, explore new places, meet new people and earn qualifications. They are heavily subsidised, and there are also bursaries available.
