RMC gunning for fourth win at Sandhurst competition
This Weekend at West Point

by Capt Paule Poulin – RMC PAO

Royal Military College (RMC) of Canada’s Sandhurst team members are putting the finishing touches on their training to defend their title at the Sandhurst military skills competition on May 3 at the US Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.

x
The Sandhurst military skills competition course is designed to test the limits of human endurance and skill, both mental and physical, through a 12-km course made harder with obstacles. The RMC team held two mini-competitions, replicating the Sandhurst competition, as part of their training. One in Kingston in mid-March focused on teamwork, and one in Petawawa in early April focused on specific skills. The competitions included such obstacles as assault boat movement and water crossing (adapted due to available bodies of water being frozen), marksmanship, wall, leader reaction course, battle casualty evacuation, and force on force.

RMC has participated in the Sandhurst competition since 1997, and has won three years running – 2005, 2006 and 2007.
