We are looking for:-
1. People to serve on the Unit Management Committee as we have recently lost three members due to ill health. No experience necessary but a willingness to help manage the unit & help with fund raising ideas. The committee meet approx once a month & members help out at the Boat Show in September.
2. People to act as civilian instructors where experience in seamanship, boatwork, engineering, catering etc.would, although not necessary, be a bonus.
Cadets range from the age of 10 to 18, this is a really worthwhile activity & full training will be given but an RN or RNR background is useful.
The commitment is for one or two evenings a week & the occasional Saturday or Sunday.
3. We are also looking for RYA qualified sailing instructors, BCU kayak instructors and RYA power instructors.
If any ex-Wessex members are interested or know someone who would be, please contact the Unit at 41 Vespasian Road, Bitterne Manor, SO18 4AY. The unit is open on Monday & Thursday evenings from 1900 to 2130, you are very welcome to come & visit. Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org and your details will be passed on.
