We managed to show round over 300 visitors last year and look forward to more when we open to the public this year

Commanding Officer of HMS Trumpeter, Lieutenant Morris

HMS Trumpeter and HMS Explorer are two of 14 P2000 Fast Inshore Patrol Craft from the Portsmouth-based First Patrol Boat Squadron.

Their primary role is to support the University Royal Naval Units but they also contribute to a wide range of Fleet tasking.

HMS Trumpeter is the training vessel for Cambridge University Royal Naval Unit and HMS Explorer provides sea training opportunities for undergraduates from the Universities of Yorkshire.

Trumpeter will leave Chatham early Sunday evening and Explorer sails early on Monday morning.
