MVS Sea Experience Trips for MN Cadets


Eleven officer cadets who have just started their Merchant Navy careers at the Warsash Maritime School at Solent University have been able to experience coastal navigation in the busy waters of the Solent on board the MVS’s national training vessel East Sussex 1.

Cadet Liaison Officer at WMS, Suzanne Galloway, said: “A huge thank you from all of us at Warsash to the MVS volunteers from the East Sussex and Southampton units for facilitating the experience and to Skipper Neil Hunter.”

MVS Liaison Director Nick Spencer commented: “The weekend with the WMS cadets enabled us to offer them a ’small ship’ experience before they step aboard vessels where they will continue to develop their chosen careers.”
