MSO and Cadet Coxswain Courses

For a week in January, Cadets and Officers from all over New Zealand met at the Tamaki Leadership Centre on Auckland’s Whangaparaoa Peninsula to undertake the Cadet Coxswain Course and Marine Safety Officers Course.

The purpose of the Cadet Coxswain Course is for cadets that already have sailing and leadership skills to assess their abilities to see if they are competent enough to be given the responsibility to assume the role of a cadet coxswain, which would enable them to be able to take Crowns or Fevas out sailing and be responsible for the crew. They are assessed on anchoring, capsizing, man overboard drills, coming up to a buoy and coming alongside a boat as well as being assessed on their leadership and sailing ability.
