RIAT 2013________________________________________________________________________________________

Congratulations to the cadets who formed the Wing Team in the Region Adventure Training Exercise (RATEX) over the weekend of 3rd to 5th May. They finished 2nd overall and did a brilliant effort on behalf of the Wing we could not have asked more of them.

The Team comprised Jack Stanton (334 (Neath) Sqn); Geraint Lawrence (499 (Port Talbot) Sqn; Adam Auden and Mike John (1092 (Bridgend) Sqn. The exercise consists of a full kit check, test of knowledge on AT and carrying out an expedition, three 6km navigational walks whilst answering questions at certain points, and pairs assessed and timed activities in kayaking (closed cockpit); rope work and three grades of climb; mountain biking on a timed route with assessment of skills shown; archery.

The winners were Merseyside Wing, with Staffordshire Wing in third.
