Swale Smack and Barge Match organisers the Kentish Sail Association last week presented Faversham Sea Cadets with a cheque for £1,000 towards the cost of sending some of the cadets afloat on the Maritime Society and Sea Cadets fleet of training vessels.

The vessels include two power ships TS Jack Petchey and sister ship the TS John Jerwood, and the brig TS Royalist.

The cheque was presented by the KSA’s longest serving committee member Lena Reekie, who has been involved in the association’s work to promote traditional sail in Kent for more than 40 years.

In addition to the successful Swale match, the association also funds young people to experience trips on sailing barge Greta and other water-based activities.
