24 hours at sea in aid of good cause

Have your say

CADETS will be taking to the open water to raise cash and awareness for charity.

The group of 43 cadets from Warsash Maritime Academy will spend 24 hours on a liferaft on the River Hamble.

They will set off at 5pm today on their challenge to raise money for Sail 4 Cancer, a specialist cancer respite charity with a sporting focus.

Cadet liaison officer David Baker said: ‘It’s a great experience and a good opportunity to enhance their training. We’re pleased to be supporting Sail 4 Cancer.’
