Starting from the Hamble River, Week 2 of the Devon Army Cadet Force Sailing Expedition took Boleh and her crew to the Eastern end of the Solent. Working with the vagaries of wind and tide, Boleh’s itinerary included Bucklers Hard and the Beaulieu River, Southampton Water, Osborne Bay, East and West Cowes, Portsmouth, Chichester and Langstone Harbours, and finally home to Haslar Marina.
Along the route Cadets learnt to sail, helm and navigate Boleh, enjoyed rowing the dinghy, swimming and beach BBQ’s, reviewed Her Majesty’s warships, and got to grips with communal life onboard a small vessel. Picture shows 2 smiling ‘galley slaves’ tackling the all important subject of the next meal! Thanks again to our volunteers for all the work they do to make these trips such a success.
