TS Royalist Deployment
This year's deployment will have the cadets join the ship in Plymouth, UK and sail out of the English Channel into the Irish Sea making its way to Holyhead, UK on the North Wales coast making a number of ports of call along the way. During the deployment, cadets are involved in every part of shipboard operations (helm, lookout, husbandry, meal preperation, seamanship, navigation, safety, etc.) and sailing evolutions (hoisting, lowering, furling and unfurling sails, on deck and aloft in the rigging, etc.) in a 24/7 watch system. Cadets will also be climbing masts using harness type safety gear. Accommodation and messing is basic and based on an open mess deck plan where Cadets sleep in individual racks with sleeping bags and have extremely limited storage space.
What do you need to participate?
In order to be eligible to participate in this deployment, a cadet must meet or exceed the following prerequisites:
- has attained 16 years of age as of the 1 Apr 18 and must not reach 18 years before 20 May 18;

100th Anniversary of the Halifax Explosion Parade
In light of it being the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion, we’ve been invited to participate in a parade to commemorate the various firefighters who answered the call that faithful morning.
However, this parade takes place Wednesday, December 6 at 1030 in the morning. So, this event would require missing some school. You are under no obligation to participate. The CO will write or call your school to confirm this information.
If you’d like to participate, and have your parents/guardians permission, please let the Trg O know by NLT Nov 30.
