Boat Handling

From Cadets

A large part of the Cadets is based around Water Activities such as Boat Handling...
The standard boat used by all Cadets is an ASC (there are differing accounts of what ASC stands for, but the first version I was ever told was Admiralty Sailing Craft
Boat Handling, in brief, is about Using an ASC with Oars (Pulling) and then Rigging it for Sail.
Crewe Unit were National Champions at this event (although I can't remember what years)

Where did it all start

From Cadets

Crewe Sea Cadets were formed in 1942, and were originally housed at Bedford Street School, they were later based next door to the Duke Of Bridgewater Pub. Both Buildings nolonger exist.
The Cadets are now in thier own HQ on Queens Street.
They are known as T.S.Ambuscade, named after their Former Affiliated Ship H.M.S. Ambuscade.
The last ship to have that name, was a Type 21 Frigate which is now the P.N.S. Tariq of the Pakistan Navy.
