Last Thursday evening saw the CCF Navy section pile into minibuses after school to travel to HMS Bristol in Portsmouth for their field day. Arriving in reasonable time the cadets were able to take in the experience of spending the night on a real Royal Navy destroyer before an early start on Friday for an action packed field day. After marching across the HMS Excellent base and past the RN HQ to breakfast our new Year 9 cadets were able to visit HMS Collingwood where they spent a morning getting wet and muddy on the Navy obstacle course before taking on the challenge of the low ropes course in the afternoon. This year we were fortunate to secure the use of two large motorboats and two small yachts which enabled all the rest of the section to spend the day afloat. Despite a lack of wind we all made it across in the sunshine to Cowes on the Isle of Wight for lunch before returning to Portsmouth and the long drive back to Woodbridge.
