Whilst you're waiting you can look at the forum a little more closely and find the threads everyone else uses for prnc and Raleigh joining dates.

Even with that fitness programme, I personally don't think it reflects anywhere near the ability needed! Saying that it may have seemed worse because there was so much phys packed into a few days

That's one of the main things about PRNC, it gives the individual a good insight of what to expect in Initial Naval Training at Raleigh.

We still see individuals rocking-up at Raleigh with a high BMI who fail the swim test or the run, unfortunately. As the saying goes; Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

Best of luck this time around.

Perhaps the only alternative is to ask RCNC to design warships with larger X and Y openings

Funny you should say that. Circular escape hatches have increased in diameter, post Falklands. Notably T22s onward.

On my ship, it was oft stated one of the more portly stokers would never get through an escape hatch. He proved them wrong when a bomb came into the boiler room, splitting an HP saturated steam pipe.

That said, I swear my ears popped as he exited the boiler room escape hatch.
