The students took part in a full holiday programme and preparations for regattas. The Italian Ambassadors Cup, sailed in Simon's Town, was a prestige event attended by the Ambassador himself (who also sailed) plus the Consul.  A special guest was Rear Admiral Paolo Treu, Commander of the visiting Italian Naval ships, who said it was the best day of his whole two month voyage.  Thirty of the students were also given a grand tour of the Aircraft Carrier Cavour.

 

Some of the other many activities included the MAC24 where the students took a 1st in the Bosun class, 1st in the 420 class and 3rd place overall. The students took part in the Navy Festival Parade plus the Festival Regatta with honours going to Sabata Gayeka.
