Northern Echo: "Catherine Comes Home In A Warship"

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by soleil, Oct 7, 2010.

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. 300 days a year at sea!!!

    Glad there's no Wafu drafts.
     
  2. Have you had a peek at the SDSR report???
     
  3. "She has a crew of more than 30 sailors and spends more than 300 days a year at sea patrolling British fishery limits, liaising with the Marine Management Organisation."

    Nightmare!!!
     
  4. The crew don't spend 300 days any more, they rotate crews with a third watch if I remember correctly.

    Although when I did fish on the Anglesey the old island class, we did 273 days at sea during my last year on there without crew rotation as we were short manned. At one point having 28 out of 40 crew. They then brought topmast in after I left her.
     
  5. It would have been less but she couldn't find 2nd gear.
