  • Warsash 2010 - Application status

    Hello, all! I've been accepted to go to Warsash in Sept. 2010 with CMT. Was just wondering, if anyone else is in the same position as me, how far they'd progressed with their application. It's April and I've had my medical and returned the paperwork for a Discharge Book, Seaman's I.D. card and a U.S. Visa. Clyde hasn't contacted my references yet though and, as yet, no joining instructions for Warsash or letter about getting a uniform. It's still early in the year. Does this sound like enough progress 5 months before I'm supposed to be joining?

    Yes I am in the same position as you however Clyde have got in contact with my references However as of yet I haven't heard anything about what company is sponsoring me. Oh I'm going to GCNS...I read somewhere that in the summer Clyde/College contact you about joining instructions etc. But I know what you mean, it's just a long waiting game....

      I heard that often cadets start at college before they find out which CMT company is sponsoring them...

          Who did you choose from their companies to work with?
          I'm not bothered if I don't get my choices, just as long as I even get on a ship I'm fine!

                They don't tell you in advance in case you are one of the many who draw Zodiac. Wouldn't want you to quit before you've even started or they have to find another warm body to take your place.

                    Never mind..I just read about the Somali pirates..



                    April 6th, 2010 - 17:30 hrs. Update 34
                    The Asian Glory sailed to east (about 580 miles) on the weekend and back to off Garacad. The purpose of her sailing unknown. Despite Zodiac's efforts to find a speedy resolution, the pirates refuse to be reasonable. Nevertheless, the company continues to be available daily for dialogue and is strongly committed to securing the release of the crew as soon as possible.


                    March 30th, 2010 - 12:00 hrs. Update 38
                    The St James Park is anchored off the Somali coast. Despite Zodiac's efforts to find a speedy resolution, the pirates refuse to be reasonable. Nevertheless, the company continues to be available daily for dialogue and is strongly committed to securing the release of the crew as soon as possible.

                      They also operated MSC Napoli.

                      They have 107 UK flagged ships, and so I'd guess have to employ about that many British cadets, but AFAIK they employ no British officers.

                      Having them as a sponsor doesn't mean you won't get your ticket in the end, but it will make it more of an achievement!

                        MSC Napoli..that was a bit of a mess. Well, I sure hope I don't end up with Zodiac then. What's everyone's opinions on Dole UK?

                            Oh no..I put Dole as my first choice! Well, I can assure you I won't be letting accidents like that happen. I know what a tower looks like, and I won't be colliding with one!
