Happy New Year CASD50!

Happy New Year!

We wish you all the very best for the year ahead and to all those taking on their ‘annual resolutions’, whether it be healthier eating, drinking less, doing more exercise or any other wonderful lifestyle changes! We at HMS Oardacious are completely focused on a beast of our own… 2019 is finally here meaning we will rowing across the Atlantic Ocean THIS YEAR! We promise to remain focused, we promise to prepare diligently and we promise to give it our absolute best, if not for ourselves but for all of you wonderful people supporting us and our fantastic Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity!

2019 also marks a very special milestone for the Royal Navy: Since April 1969, and the fifth patrol of HMS Resolution, there has always been a Royal Navy Ballistic Missile Submarine at sea, providing a Continuous At Sea Deterrent (CASD), and ensuring that the UK remains safe. This year marks 50 years of unbroken service in maintaining CASD. We could not be more proud to be a part of the many events showcasing the human endeavour and commitment necessary to sustain this vital operation.

We are delighted to kick start 2019 announcing our second Silver Partners TPGroup; a professional services and technology partner with global contracts on highly-regulated programmes across defence, space, energy and intelligence & communications. They have a notable history with the Royal Navy Submarine Service and we are delighted to have them “on-board” as partners.

Finally, a shout out goes to our latest 250club members Chris and Kirsten Jones who’s names will be printed on the side of our boat so that they join us on our epic adventure.
