Sea cadets are on the crest of a wave

The Oban Times - - News -

SOME Oban Sea Cadets re­cently at­tended a weekend of in­ten­sive boat­ing in­struc­tion in In­ver­ness.

It was a su­perb weekend of fun and prac­ti­cal in­struc­tion on power boat han­dling and ca­noe­ing. They also took part in a row­ing com­pe­ti­tion, but were un­for­tu­nately beaten at the pre­lim­i­nary stage by an as­ton­ish­ing per­for­mance from Camp­bel­town Sea Cadets, who went on to take sec­ond place in the over­all event.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Cadet Chloe Camp­bell, 1st Class Cadet Kate Home, 1st Class Cadet Con­nor Ge­orge, and 1st Class Cadet Aaron McCall, who suc­cess­fully com­pleted their RYA Level 1 Power Boat. 1st Class Cadet Christo­pher Den Hei­jer com­pleted and passed his Bri­tish Ca­noe­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tion pad­dle power level 1, which was a com­bi­na­tion of sea kayak­ing, river ca­noe­ing and Cana­dian ca­noe han­dling pro­ce­dures.

Oban Sea Cadets con­tinue to pro­vide fun and ad­ven­ture activities re­sult­ing in cadets achiev­ing qual­ity train­ing and gain­ing na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions.
