Four Sea & Royal Marines Cadets from Jersey Sea Cadets Unit have taken part in the 2017 Tall Ships race over the past two weeks. Joining the ship in Kotka, Finland, the four cadets took part in a "Cruise in Company" with all the other Tall Ships involved, before participating in Race Two of the three race series from Turku, Finland to Klaipeda, Lithuania. The cadets enjoyed some success in the race with TS Royalist finishing 2nd in Class and 2nd Overall at the end of Race Two.
TS Royalist, the Sea Cadets flagship is one of five offshore vessels owned by Sea Cadets which gives cadets the opportunity to experience life on board a tall ship, yacht or power vessel for up to a week at a time with other cadets from all over the UK. Whilst doing so they are able to earn internationally recognised RYA qualifications.
Pictured are the four Jersey cadets at the conclusion of Race Two, showing off their silverware and no doubt looking forward to a well earned rest after the rigours and demands of racing.
