21 Cadets Pass their Water Safety Test

10 April 2018

On the 10th April 2018, 21 Cadets took to GL1's Swimming Pool to complete the annual swimming test ahead of our boating season. 

The Water Safety Test involves cadets having to get into the deep end of the pool whilst wearing boating clothes and a buoyancy aid, they then have to swim 25 Metres then tread water for 1 minute and then climb.

Needless to say, they all passed.
