Sailing Watches Review
Sunrise Sunset 2010 News
David Tuttlebee (who has a beach hut, and regularly windsurfs, at Hayling Island) had a tumour removed from his Bowel in May 2006, whilst undergoing an emergency operation for Appendicitis.
He needed a second operation a week later to seal his bowel and then had 10 days in intensive care units.
Colon cancer was confirmed and chemotherapy was undertaken for the following 9 months. He was not allowed to get the "groshong line" (surgically fitted to his artery vein in his chest) wet and also could not undergo physical movements in case it was dislodged.
David was a keen windsurfer but also played a lot of tennis and skis. He had 12 months "out of sporting action" due to the treatments/recovery of health/muscle strength.
He travelled every weekend to Hayling to watch his colleagues windsurfing (despite not always feeling/looking that well) and often rigged sails on the shingle.
Part of his "therapy" was to buy/sell kit at the Hayling windsurfing monthly jumble as he wanted to set himself up with updated boards and sails in wave, speed/slalom, freeride and formula categories ready for his return to the water.
He had been a participant at the annual "Weymouth Speed Week" and, even though between his fortnightly (administered over 3 days) chemotherapy treatment, he helped in the registration/administration office in the October of 2006.
He remained positive throughout and received a lot of support/encouragement from his friends and family but they all new that deep down he was often not feeling as well as "portrayed".
To ski before the end of the 2006/7 season was his first priority once the treatment finished with back on the water and tennis court the first week of May 2007 being the second/third aim.
All three were achieved and his strength and abilities improved during the summer months. He helped again in the registration office at Weymouth speed week 2007 and was once again a participant.
He went skiing three times in the 2007/8 winter season and also windsurfed and played tennis throughout the winter, giving him a great boost into spring and summer of 2008. Effectively he looked and felt strong and had enjoyed being back to his sporting interests over the 18 months (after the "year out") leading up to speed week on the 3rd October 2008.
He had attended regular meetings with his surgeon when his blood tests were fine. He had clear scans in March and July 2007 and an ultra sound on his kidneys and bowel in February 2008 was clear.
A further scan was scheduled for mid September 2008 but feeling and looking strong David just thought it to be routine.
David was a reader of the Cancer Research UK quarterly bulletin and read of other sufferers doing sponsored "runs, walks, climbs or rides" but he did not wish to train for something out of his normal body strength.
In early September 2008 he thought that with his "three year anniversary" (of being told he had colon cancer) coming up next May that he should attempt something personally to raise money for Cancer Research.
He decided to windsurf at Hayling from "sunrise to sunset" and get colleagues to join him for part of the day. He would get himself sponsored by colleague windsurfers, friends and family as his personal thank you for cancer research.
By linking a day to next years "National Windsurfing Week" he would also have a local focus for donations etc.
He outlined his initial thoughts to fellow windsurfers at Hayling without knowing that the scan undertaken a few days early had shocking results.
A week after the scan, and "out of the blue", he had a phone call from the Hospital Colon Team to visit them the following day. At the visit, and to his surprise, he was told that the scan showed significant changes from July 2007 and that his file is now going to a "Lung team". He then attended two hospital clinics for biopsies to be taken from a mass in his lung and the neck thyroid.
The tests were to be analysed microscopically over 5 days and an Oncology meeting was set for Monday 6th October (part of Weymouth Speed Week 2008).
Even with a sore throat/neck from the biopsies David still travelled to Weymouth to both windsurf the speed course and help again in the office from the Saturday start day.
He travelled back to his hospital for the Monday meeting and was told the distressing news that Colon Cancer had returned to his neck and two parts of his lung.
He was to have a new PET scan, undertake six fortnightly sessions of Chemotherapy, a further scan and a review as to further chemo, an operation or radiotherapy if the nodes could be surgically cut out.
David returned to Weymouth that evening to share with the organising team and fellow windsurfers that the fears were confirmed. The shock news was received with empathy.
He also talked about the prognosis to Dave White (not only a top windsurfer but has also be
TS Royalist is a brig owned and operated as a sail training ship by the Marine Society & Sea Cadets (MSSC) of the United Kingdom.
Royalist is 83 GRT and her hull is 23.32 metres (76 ft 6 in) long, with an overall length of 29.52 metres (96 ft 10 in). As well as her sails, she is equipped with two Perkins diesel engines of 110 kilowatts (150 hp) each. The engines drive twin screw propellers.
Royalist was built by Groves and Guttridge, Cowes, Isle of Wight. She was designed by Colin Mudie RDI and launched on 3 August 1971 by Princess Anne. In 1992, Royalist was taken out of the water for a refit, termed as a "Mid-Life Upgrade". Various facilities were improved, and she got a new coat of paint. Royalist was re-launched by Princess Anne, (now the Princess Royal). She is built of steel, with an overall length of 29 metres (97 feet) (not including the bowsprit, which adds about 8 metres onto her overall length), and has a traditional square-rigged brig layout.
Almost every week of the year, 24 Sea Cadets, Combined Cadet Force (Navy) and a single week of Air cadets from all over the UK join the ship and spend the whole week on board working as part of the team. Many different parts of the UK are visited, sailing from her home berth in Gosport to Southampton, Poole and the Isle of Wight.
Every week, there are two berths made available to Adults (18+) as Watch Officers.
There are 6 permanent members of crew who instruct the embarked cadets on a weekly basis, and also carry out the maintenance/winter refit. These are the Captain, the Sailing Master, the Engineer, the Boatswain (Bosun), the Coxswain and the Cook.
On 20 May 1996, Royalist ran aground in the River Severn some 3 nautical miles (5.6 km) north of the Severn Bridge near Oldbury Power Station. Twenty cadets were taken off by helicopter and lifeboat.
On 5 April 2009. Royalist ran aground in Chapman's Pool, Dorset (50°35?17?N 2°04?46?W). The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) investigated the incident and found that the Master of Royalist had taken on too many tasks at once.
On the evening of 2 May 2010 a 14 year old male Sea Cadet was killed, following a fall from the rigging whilst furling sails when the ship was anchored in Stokes bay, in the Solent. He was named the next day as Jonathan Martin. The MAIB opened an investigation into the accident. The report into the accident was published on 3 March 2011. It concluded that the cadet fell because he had unclipped his safety harness when trying to manoeuvre past a crewmember in order to go to the assistance of another crewmember. This was contrary to standing instructions and his training. The supervision of cadets aloft was criticized. Two recommendations were made.

Trips abroad are also taken regularly, such as to the Channel Islands and to France, Belgium and in some cases, the Netherlands and Germany. Also, during the Tall Ships race period, Royalist can visit other countries of Europe.
For around four or five weeks of the year, for The Tall Ships' Races, Royalist becomes a racing ship. During this period, only cadets who are over 16 years of age are allowed to crew her. This period usually involves a crew taking her to the start of the race (1 week duration). Then, the race crew come onboard, and race Royalist against other Class A ships in the race, which are from all over the world (2 week duration). When the race finishes, yet another crew come aboard, and bring her back home (2 week duration).
Cadets can gain various qualifications when they complete a week on board TS Royalist, which are Offshore Hand 1, Offshore Hand 2, Offshore Seaman, and Offshore Watchleader. The only way to gain any further qualifications, is by getting day skippers, onboard TS Vigilant or the sister TS City Liveryman.
