Reginald Fessenden Challenge 2017

Command & Sonar Systems participated in the Reginald Fessenden Challenge 2017, an annual charity sailing event in support of The Not Forgotten Association. The charity provides entertainment and leisure facilities to serving and ex-service men and women that have been injured during or after service in the Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force. This event was supported by a number of key industry underwater warfare companies such as Atlas Elektronik (UK) Ltd, Thales and QinetiQ as well as guests from MoD and NCHQ. The Ultra crew included Tim O’Neill, Sean Bell, Stuart Riches, Mark Wildman, Mark Anderson (Head Office), Iain Robertshaw (PMES) and our guest Cdr Simon Pressdee RN, SO1 Mine Countermeasures. Despite the bad weather and with nine boats entered in the race, Ultra came an impressive second place behind TPG Maritime, with Thales in eighth place.
