Two cadets from 347 RCSCC Avenger traveled to Vancouver on June 23 to take part in an annual Sailing Regatta sponsored by The Navy League of Canada, at Jericho Sailing Centre.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Brandon Douglas and Leading Seaman Griffin Aie competed against 10 other teams from across BC. They placed first in the first three races and second in the fourth race.

Sailing is one of the main focuses of Sea Cadet training. Even though the Corps only sails a few times per year, it has cadets who have taken part in many regattas over the years.

Congratulations to these two fine sailors.
