Cadets Get Ready to Row
South Hook LNG representatives were delighted to formally present Milford Haven Sea Cadets and Royal Marine Cadets with their new ‘Yole’ rowing craft. The Milford Haven Unit recently partnered with British Rowing in order to provide nationally recognised rowing qualifications for their members and this vessel will increase the number of courses they can attempt. As spring arrives the cadets are keen to get out onto the waterway and try out the new sliding seat rowing vessel for the first time.
Sub Lieutenant William Elliott, Commanding Officer of the Milford Haven Sea Cadets commented “Without generous donations we would not be able to progress forward in providing better facilities and equipment for the young people in Milford Haven and surrounding areas. We are delighted that South Hook LNG continue to support us and this can be seen through helping us develop sliding seat rowing.”
South Hook LNG is proud to continue its association with the Sea Cadets in Milford Haven, having previously donated a safety boat to the unit. Frank Thomas, Shipping Superintendent with South Hook LNG commented “It is great to visit the cadets here in Milford Haven and see the enthusiasm that they have for the Marine Services. The dedicated volunteers are able to encourage safe and educational activities on the waterway and on land, supporting the cadets in developing invaluable skills for their futures”.
