Naval cadets sail the solent

Over the weekend, a crew of Naval CCF cadets, Chloe Degnan (5th,Ch), Boudica Yi (4th, W), George Wells (L6, S), Robbie Carson (5th, S) and Jamie Orme (U6, S), travelled to Portsmouth and sailed the Solent to Chichester harbour on a 36 foot CCF yacht, Cornish Air, to practise their yachting skills under the instruction of a CCF Yacht Master. Jamie completed his five-day day skipper course last year, which enables him to skipper a yacht on short passages. He will be using his skills again on the CCF Field Day later in the term when, weather permitting, all 45 Naval cadets will be afloat at Portsmouth. Robbie and George will be joined by the Head of the Naval section, Will Jury-Simpson (U6, BH) on a CCF offshore sailing course at Plymouth during the first week of half term.
