By JIMMY NESS Two Heretaunga College students recently sailed down the North Island on a 1900 tonne New Zealand Navy vessel armed with two .55 calibre machine guns. Hayden Stunell, 17, and Caitlin Boyd, 17, were selected to visit the national navy base and sail from Auckland to Wellington for the navy's 70th anniversary. They returned on September 29 after four days at sea on the off-shore patrol vessel HMNZS Otago and an escort of 10 other navy ships. Sailing on the 85 metre boat was daunting, Hayden says. It is pretty scary at first but after the first day you meet the whole crew and you learn the lay- out pretty quickly. I've never been on the sea like that before. That was a big scare factor and it's a big ship.'' The pair stayed with six other New Zealand students in tight bunks only 45 centimetres apart. They were also given the oppor- tunity to steer the ship at a rate of 16 knots and use night-vision goggles to locate enemy ships dur- ing a night-watch exercise between 2am and 4am. Caitlin says they also took part in physical training. It was quite full-on but it was really cool. It was just really weird run- ning on a ship and it was just rocking up and down.'' The food was surprisingly good, she says. It was amazing, they were like proper cooked meals. You had roast veges and puddings and stuff, I didn't expect it at all.'' Hayden says he met with sev- eral members of the 50 person crew. I talked to chefs, weapons technicians and engineers because I'm interested in that stuff.''
