Working with the Sea Cadets
On 13th September, hundreds gathered at St Katherine Dock to witness the naming and commissioning of our new yacht ‘TS Sir Stelios’, a donation kindly provided by the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation , to the UK charity called Sea Cadets.
Sea Cadets is very different from school. There’s a lot of learning. But it’s done through activities – on the water and off the water – with experienced volunteers leading by example. It’s also different from home, a break from screens and being cooped up inside. The platform they offer is built on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy. .
The Rustler 42 yacht – so named because it is 42 feet long – will enable more cadets to take part in transformational voyages at sea and enjoy the thrill and challenges of sailing first hand. Through a range of bursaries Sea Cadets endeavours to offer all it’s cadets, regardless of their background, to embark on this trip of a lifetime.
