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. The Faslane-based Northern Diving Group (NDG) is cycling on a fixed spinning bike underwater for a week to raise cash for Sport Relief. It broke the Guinness World Record of 163km for underwater cycling late yesterday and regular updates are being published on the team's Face Book page here.

    Endorsements have been received from the Prime Minister and Sir Chris Hoy. The team is well on the way to achieving its fundraising target of £5,000 and donations can be made online via its Sport Relief page here.

  3. Divers not doing any work, hardly newsworthy ;)

    I suppose I can squeeze a grudging respect long enough to say "Well Done, top effort!":pirate:

    Normal derisory comments will resume shortly, apologies for the break from tradition.
     
  5. Just look at the colour of the water, the hair gel has made it all cloudy.... and I see a fake tan sheen on the glass.
     
  6. That is a tank of hair gel, that's why it was a much harder record to break :)

    That'll be a two way mirror. No way he's not admiring himself.

    Er, good show.
     
  8. I Just noticed they strapped a chunky watch to the outside with HBM. The weight of it is distorting his view of the outside world. Just like reading the daily mail.....

    The team completed its epic week-long underwater cycling challenge yesterday afternoon after pedaling 1,001 miles, smashing a world record and raising almost £5,000 for Sport Relief. Mission accomplished.
