Drakes Island?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello first post, Can some one tell me who now owns Drakes Island and why is such a prime site like that being left to ruin when it could be used for Adventure traing for Sea Cadets ACF etc
  2. Don't forget the MOD rent space from the current owner due to the mast that is on display
  3. Thats(allegedly) one of the reasons that the current owner is in no hurry to develop the site. There are even completley unfounded rumours that the rental for the mast was increased as soon as the lease was signed! The fate of Drakes Island isomething of a cause celebre amongst Pymothians, and IIRC there is at least one website/discussion board devoted to it.
  4. remember spending a weekend on there during training tidy the palce up in 77
  5. Me too. I was there around April 77 and had a great laugh on the place. Hard work tidying up though, but still had plenty of fun with the instructors.
