THE Royal Australian Navy is offering a chance to take command of an Australian submarine.
Participants in the virtual mission will navigate the submarine through international waters to Hawaii as part of its 2020 National Submarine Tour and Competition.
The competition is open to Australians aged 18 to 35 years old who, as well as taking command of the sub, will have to explain in 50 words or less which submariner role they are most suited to and why. Two winners from each state and territory will receive a threeday, two-night trip to HMAS Stirling at Garden Island.
They will go behind the scenes and see world class technology, meet serving members and experience a day in the life of a Navy Submariner.
Able Seaman Submariner Nathan Downes said all Australians should test themselves in the online game to see if they had what it took to become a submariner in the Royal Australian Navy. Director General Defence Force Recruiting Air Commodore Sue Mcgready said the competition gave people a look at career options in the Navy.
Entries for the National Submarine Tour and Competition are now open and close November 23. Winners will be contacted in December.
