30 cadets and staff from 1461 Wigston Sqn have recently returned from a weekends water sports activity at Bosworth water, Market Bosworth. Having arrived on the Friday and set up camp the cadets and staff played some sport on the Saturday morning followed by sailing and wind surfing in the afternoon. For some, it was the first time that the y had tried any water sports, however all had great fun. In the evening they experienced the boss’s BBQ cooking and we can gladly report that all have survived. Sunday Morning was spent once again out on the water with a team exercise in raft building and racing the rafts around an island, followed by bell boating, where even the boss stuck in his oar and got paddling! The camp was an opportunity to un wind after a full on few months, in fact the sqn has had things on ,most weekends since February.
Officer in Charge 1461 Wigston Sqn Fg Off Tim Hargraves commented “This has been a great weekend. This has been an annual event for the Sqn, I missed it last year so was keen to see what the cadets were raving about. This camp gives the cadets an opportunity to try new activities that are not freely available normally, it’s really good to see them working together as a team and enjoying themselves.”
