Royal Navy supports Jersey Boat Show

For the eighth consecutive year the Royal Navy will have a strong presence at the Jersey Boat Show.

River Class Patrol ship HMS Tyne will arrive in Jersey on Friday, May 1 along with two P2000 Fast Patrol Boats - HMS Trumpeter the training vessel for Cambridge University Royal Naval Unit and HMS Ranger, training vessel for Sussex University Royal Naval Unit.

HMS Tyne will be berthing on Albert Pier and the P2000s in the Marina. The three vessels will remain in Jersey until Tuesday, May 5. 

They will be joined at the Boat Show by four Offshore Raiding Craft (ORCs) which are designed to transport Royal Marines from ship to shore and for support missions along coastlines and river networks. 

All three ships and the ORCs will be open to the public during the show. 

A number of other Royal Navy and Royal Marines assets will be on display in Weighbridge Square.

These include a Royal Navy Lynx Helicopter, a demonstrator ORC on a trailer, and a Royal Marines Reserve weapons display. Informal music will be provided by The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines, Collingwood.
