Across the country, thousands of Sea Cadets and volunteers were challenged to collectively sail a total of 7,380 miles – the number of miles around the UK. We are very pleased to announce that they did it! They sailed a massive 7,445 miles – beating their target by 65 miles!
During Saturday 21 to Sunday 29 June, Sea Cadets and volunteers got out on the water to sail as many miles as they could, seeking sponsorship for every mile they sail to help them raise money for their units. They took over lakes, rivers, canals and boating stations across the country to help them reach their target, and some units were lucky to have a visit from Captain Sea Cadets, Captain Jon Holloway RN, during their sailing events. Well done!
