SEA CADETS BID FAREWELL TO FLAGSHIP AFTER 43 YEARS

12 October 2014

TS Royalist, the Sea Cadet Corp's flagship vessel, has been on a tour of the UK before she is decommissioned later this year to make way for a new vessel ahead of the 2015 offshore season.  After 43 years of faithful service taking over 30,000 cadets to sea, the 96-foot brig is due to retire.

TS Royalist left Queen’s Quay in Belfast for the final time on Sunday, August 3rd with a flotilla of sail.  Around 100 cadets and staff from across Northern Ireland paraded in front of the iconic vessel and invited guests, before the ship set sail.

Sea Cadets will welcome a new tall ship next year, which they have helped to raise money for.
