The national youth charity Sea Cadets is realising its dreams of a brand new boating station fit for the 21st century in north London. World Champion sailor Megan Pascoe and other special guests joined sixty Sea Cadets and well-wishers for the formal opening ceremony of the Sea Cadets Welsh Harp Boat Station in Wembley, North London on Saturday 14 May 2016.
Sea Cadets raised £750,000 to replace the former boat station, which was built in 1960. Megan Pascoe took time out of her training to join us at the opening, and cut the ribbon to declare Welsh Harp officially open!
Tye Shuttleworth, Head of Inshore Boating at Sea Cadets, says: “We have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of our 21st century boat station. We believe it will enable thousands more young people to gain qualifications and develop their life skills to grab a better future.”
