RYA Powerboat Level 1 Course 16th - 17th February
Most people view February as a month still gripped by wintery weather. But not Colchester Sea Cadets!!!!!!!
3 cadets donned their thermals and waterproofs and took to the water at Welsh Harp Boat Station near Wembley in London. The 2 day Powerboat Course was one of the many courses on offer at the Boat Station and the first of several courses that Colchester unit plan to engage in this year.
Cadets Benjamin and Issac Pearson, and Cadet First Class Bailey Coe all passed their Level 1 qualification and now set their sights on achieving the Level 2 qualification.
Cadet 1st Class Bailey Coe Said:
"I experienced a fantastic time achieving my RYA powerboat level 1 at Welsh Harp. It was also a great opportunity to meet and befriend a fellow cadet from Watford unit. The two days were absolutely brilliant made better by the helpful staff members,they even remember how you like your coffee!"
Welsh Harp Boat Station is one of 2 London Area Boat Stations, with the other being at Royal Victoria Docks near Greenwich. Together, the two centres offer continuous development opportunities and courses in Power boating, Paddlesport, Sailing, Windsurfing and Rowing.
