TS Wyvern Sea Cadet Unit take the helm of a 60-foot Clipper
How generous can a company be? Ask the Chairman of Sittingbourne and Milton Sea Cadets.
Advance FM purchased a sailing experience at Kent Sports Trust Charity Auction in 2017. We decided to give this to Sittingbourne and Milton Sea Cadets. The Cadets got to take the helm of a 60 foot Clipper named the Mermerus. The Clipper has sailed in the “Around the World Boat Race” four times and is one of only eight ever made of its class. “The experience was second to none with the cadets taking the helm, doing the rigging and then in teams winching, tacking and jibing the Clipper around the Solent for six hours – needless to say, the cadets slept all the way home. Thanks again to Advance FM for the opportunity and support of the TS Wyvern Sea Cadet Unit”
