Sea Cadets at Great Yarmouth are now all set for a busy season of boating, thanks to a programme of maintenance over the winter.

The staff have been busy carrying out routine maintenance and repairs at the unit's Boatwork Centre - Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club - including an overhaul of the ASC Pulling (Rowing) Boat.

Waveney River Centre at Burgh St Peter also gave assistance by craning out the Cheverton Champ Powerboat, allowing the training aid to be given a paint and polish.

Petty officer Graeme Richardson said: “We are extremely appreciative of both organisations for all their assistance over the winter, without whom we would not be in a position to offer such a high quality of boatwork training throughout the summer months.”

The unit, based on Riverside Road, Gorleston, has recently added a rigid inflatable boat to it's fleet which will act as a safety boat for sailing training, as well as both cadet and adult powerboat training.
