Solent training opportunities on East Sussex 1 in July

ES1 will be on charter to the RN for Combined Cadet Force training in the Solent from Sunday 8 to Sunday 15 July. Only a small crew will be needed for the actual deployment but we can take up to 15 members on the delivery trips.

 

The plan is to slip from Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, early on Saturday 9 July and return on Monday 16 July.

The trips there and back will be valuable training; for those counting seatime for RYA purposes, the trips will provide one or possibly two nights on board. The only costs will travelling to and from the vessel. Catering onboard will be free of charge .

Please let David Hughes know by email (anderimar.news@googlemail.com) if you would like to be on one or both of these trips.
