Weston College students battle challenges to win Naval Cup
AN assault course, tug-of-war, deck hockey on a naval ship, six-mile navigation, a cross country challenge and mock grenade throwing saw Weston College students named best in the South West.
Sponsored by the Royal Marines, 15 public service students battled eight colleges in the HMS Raleigh Piers Cellars Training Centre in Cornwall for two days to win the coveted Naval Careers Service Challenge Cup.
Senior public services lecturer, Dave Beresford, said: “The Level two and three students were all under the age of 18 and really pulled together as a team.
“The assault course saw students fighting their way up 60 degree inclines and crossing a flooded harbour.
