Sea Cadets across the UK have rowed the world. Over 24,900 miles have been achieved since the national ‘Row the World in 80 hours’ launched at 7am on Thursday 18 April.
Over the last four days nearly 200 Sea Cadet units and over 3,000 cadets and volunteers have been working hard to row the miles that will raise pounds for a new Sea Cadet training ship.
The end of the row was signalled as staff from Sea Cadet HQ in London reached Tower Bridge in London, after spending the last 80 hours rowing from Oxford – champagne was toasted under the bridge on a huge achievement!
To keep spirits up as the team rowed to London, units along the way cheered their progress and offered a helping hand - Sunbury and Walton gave them tea and cakes and Oxford, Maidenhead and Kingston gave them a bed for the night!
Well done to everybody who has taken part or who has sponsored us, your support means the world to us. We’ll post up the total amount raised shortly.
