Anyone on Forum experienced Phase2 training @ Sultan?
i have a few questions,

first what was your experience of your training,
i've heard it's challenging and lengthy at best.

and does phase 2 training count as onshore
posting, i.e do weekend leave rules apply?

Weekend rules apply (depending on what rules your on about), Phase 2 doesn't count as an onshore posting as your not on the trained strength yet.
As for how hard the training is, depends on you and your background (educational and occupational) and isn't meant to be easy, and what branch you are, ET(ME) or AET

When you going Tim? I'm going to be boarding there later in the year for a while. I might let you buy me a pint. :wink:

i'll be in as AET,
i'm expecting lots of maths so am swotting up.
Yes, one can leave the base at weekends if one isn't duty or required for work.
You'll be an AET - good - bravo and well done.
Keep on swotting up - but remember to enjoy yourself occasionally - all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Nah, I'm just plodding along at the moment, working when work comes my way and keeping up with phys :lol:

If I have to wait, I have to wait. I'd rather they make sure I'm fully fit on entry than let me fcuk my self up beyond repair.

To be honest, I'm going to try and keep my mum away from my passing out parade should I get that far, so don't bank on it ;)

Pretty sure they do. In fact, if memory serves, they also have an indoor Ski slope, a Tahitian masseuse parlour, 2 on-the-house sushi bars, en-suite sauna/steam rooms, an indoor waterpark with flumes and boogie boards, 24-hr room service, a circus and a scuba-diving dog called Plunger.

ha bloody ha mates,
well they seem pretty kitted up with
their *ahum* DISCO club lol.

they mentioned watersports onsite so was
wondering, or is it merely an access to a suitable
sailing launch site?

They meant swamping your rack on bop nights (and there's plenty of local launch sites in Lee-on-the-Solent)

Probably something like that, plenty of different watersports that it could be, some slightly more frowned on than others perhaps..
