We are excited to share news of the newly forged partnership between the Sandhurst Trust and GRS, a distinguished leader in the building industry. Renowned as the foremost provider of bagged aggregates in the construction sector, GRS delivers a staggering 100,000 bags daily.
With a workforce exceeding 800 individuals, the company is committed to employee growth through initiatives like the GRS Academy, designed to train and enhance skills. The GRS Academy makes extensive use of the facilities at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as one of the Sandhurst Trust's corporate business clients.
GRS has kindly agreed to sponsor the sailing expeditions that take place at the end of each term as part of the Adventurous Training (AT) programme. Adventurous Training (AT) is an important factor in the development of Officer Cadets at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Designed to take them out of their comfort zone, AT goes beyond physical activities; it instils qualities and skills essential for military leadership and personal development.
Expeditions to date:
Exercise Jolly Roger
All in all, a great trip with some great memories. What started as a motley bunch somehow ended with 5 competent crew qualified sailors. Thank you to the Sandhurst Trust and GRS for their sponsorship.
We didn’t capsize, but did snap the jib halyard out at sea and had to send OCdt Suka forward for some very Master-and-Commander-esque moments to reattach the sail to another line. The week was rounded off nicely with the sun making a last minute showing to watch us swab the decks, clean up, and take a celebratory survivor’s photo. A big thank you to GRS for sponsoring our expedition.
Exercise Salty Dog
We had sailed 194 miles in 5 days, we were very glad to have pushed ourselves to do more as it would have been easy to stay close to Gosport and do shorter legs. The trip has left us all keen to do more sailing, as well as sample other AT on offer from the Army. It has also highlighted how important AT will be for our Platoons/troops and how it can build teams and confidence as well as provide experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you to GRS for sponsoring us.
