  1. Year 1; Check

    As I near the end of my first year as Cox'n of RCSCC Centurion, I can quite effectively look back and see that, finally, our corp has the chance to return to what it once was (except maybe a little bigger). I think we have achieved a huge increase in discipline and respect, that's not to say we don't have somewhere to go from here. This isn't my attempt to claim that this is entirely my doing, I would be nowhere if it weren't for my officers at the corp level, Lt (N) Gauthier (CO), Lt (N) Molitor ...

  2. Feels like a big day

    I just printed off my cadet resume and cover letter that I've written up to try and get coxswain, hopefully I'll be sitting the boards in just a few weeks. I'm so nervous though, it's been a really hard year and I'm not sure I'm ready to be turned down again, but I know I'll be kicking myself come tomorrow if I don't hand it in today. I do know, however, that if I do get it I'll be ready to do it. Since the merit board is just a few weeks away I'll be busting out the hairspray and starch come tomorrow. ...

    Okay, just because I have nothing better to do at the moment while I wait for the bus that I will get to momentarily, I'm gonna write this post.

    So, holiday stand down technically ends today, thats good, but man the past two weeks off have been great. Some of the people who read this probably saw my last post, and I'm happy to report that I have since cleared my head and am all in for the next few months. I realised the other day, I've got seventeen weeks left before our all important ...

  4. It's not enough?

    Promotions to CPO2 were two day ago, I was up for them, I didn't get it, that sucked, but it was alright until the kicker. My XO came up to me and tried to explain to me that I should be doing some more stuff to prove I deserve CPO2. This. Is. Crazy. Let me explain to you what it is I do at my corps so you can fully understand my point of view:
    • Chief Boatswains Mate (Including the duties necessary during coulours and sunset)
    • Training PO
    • Drum Major
    • Attending every event and team with the

  5. Teaching, Finally

    So yesterday was my very first class that I had to solo and man was it different then in training. When you're in training you're always worried about, was it long enough, did I cover all the mandatory information, was I to harsh on my cadets etc. But the second that class is truly in YOUR hands it's completely different, you know that you have all the answers and you feel confident, you feel safe punishing the cadets in the way you see fit, and it's a great feeling. I was proud at the end of the ...
