It sends out search party for vol­un­teers

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

find new con­fi­dence and in­spi­ra­tion.

‘Cur­rently we have 15 cadets, four vol­un­teer in­struc­tors with a unit man­age­ment team in sup­port.

‘Sadly we have a num­ber of prob­lems. In the first in­stance we need more vol­un­teer in­struc­tors, ei­ther in uni­form or not, what­ever they wish, and es­pe­cially fe­male in­struc­tors.

‘As read­ers will un­der­stand, if we are to be open to both boys and girls we must have the in­struc­tors to match.

‘We also need a num­ber of vol­un­teers to come for­ward to join the unit man­age­ment team.

‘I am sure there are some won­der­ful peo­ple out there will­ing to as­sist with the de­velop- ment of our youth.

‘Mem­bers do not have to have nau­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence, just a will­ing­ness to give some time to the unit and the corps.

‘In­struc­tors will need to have some nau­ti­cal knowl­edge but do not need to be pro­fes­sional sailors. Gifted am­a­teurs are just as good.

‘Our ex­cel­lent com­mand­ing of­fi­cer is due to stand down at the end of this year af­ter 10 years in post; a re­quire­ment of the Sea Cadet Corps.

‘We are scour­ing the area to find a re­place­ment and feel sure there is one such can­di­date out there; so please step for­ward.’

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in help­ing out should con­tact Michael on 01631 562734.
