Members of the 17th Colchester Sea Scouts & Tsunami Explorer Scout Unit attended the Annual Royal Navy Recognised Soccer Sixes Competition at Whale Island in Portsmouth.

Staying onboard HMS Bristol, a decommisioned Type 82 Destroyer and experiencing naval life, 6 Scouts and 6 Explorers competed against other Royal Navy Sea Scout Groups from around the country over two days of games.

The Scouts were victorious in their competition beating 6th Hamble in the final 1-0.

The Tsunami Explorers were slightly less fortunate loosing the semi final to the eventual winners 6th Hamble, but managed to pick themselves up and finished 3rd.
