Cadets enjoyed the CCF Afloat Camp during half term

The CCF held a tri-service afloat camp at Hickling Broad during the half term break, 26-30 May. On Saturday and Monday the cadets took RYA training courses in powerboating and dinghy sailing with cadets earning stage 2, stage 3 and Assistant Instructor qualifications in sailing and level 2 powerboating.

Sunday was an upriver trip to Horsey Mill in sail and powerboats. All cadets also enjoyed an evening of paddleboarding, and some additional sailing time on the water. It was a great long weekend of camping and water activities, complete with excellent catering by our professional RAF chef. Even the unseasonably cold weather didn’t dampen spirits! We look forward to more afloat activity on CCF field days.
