Holidays all at sea for sailors
THE TS Marmion naval cadets unit will host its annual sailing regatta north of Hillarys Boat Harbour these school holidays.
Cadets from Albany, Mandurah and Cockburn will compete against local TS Marmion crews until October 6 to take away the trophy.
All cadets from recruits to petty officers are eligible to compete in a crew.
This year’s TS Marmion skippers are Finn Jackson, Jessica Bonner and Eve Jackson from Duncraig Senior High School, and former Mindarie High School student Alannah Brown.
“Along with the friendly competition, cadets will organise an indoor rock climbing activity, run a sport night, games night and quiz night,” commanding officer Clare McCaskie said.
“All these activities are designed to promote leadership and develop teamwork in our young people.”
For more, call 9246 3246 or visit the unit at 40 Northside Drive, Hillarys Boat Harbour.
The unit accepts enrolments from the year a child turns 13.
