The Boarding Party is nominated by your Departmental Co-ordinator & training is usually undertaken at Whale Island, Portsmouth. You can volunteer if you wish.

Gone are the days of taking iPods & the like. The general consensus is that training is a little more "gritty" than in days of yore & apparently the helicopter remains on task nowadays too.

To become a member of the elite boarding squad you must first become a ST Coxswain. Only once you've qualified and proved your self as an STC you can progress on to the elite

Did my STC training at Plymouth, very hard work but very satisfying once you have your proficiency badge.
I've heard tell that it will soon count towards obtaining your dolphins. :wink:

The branch is fcukin dying. We used to frequently go on splash target patrol whilst absolutely hammered, sometimes drinking was the only way to get through a hard watch.

cheers, I don't think my eyesight would qualify me to be part of the boarding party but I was just interested in how they're selected.

Thanks
Don't worry about your eyesight! You should see what some of the Elite Boarding party use take home with them after night in Jesters or Jo's!
