HMS Smiter - Cowes

Drill nights take place every Thursday night between 1830 - 2100 at Falklands House during term time. Typical tasks include the following:

  • Theoretical navigation tuition 
  • Practical leadership tasks
  • Drill practice
  • CMI leadership qualifications
  • Social Events such as Trafalgar Night and end of term parties

Drill nights provide a basis for Sea Weekends and our Easter and Summer Deployments where students consolidate what they have learned throughout the year in a practical environment.
