An Ely cadet will join others on board training tall ship Royalist as they set sail on a week-long voyage to France and back.
First Class air cadet Thea Poli of the 1094 Ely Squadron was successful in her application and will be setting off from Dorset in the coming weeks.
Luckily, Thea has sailed before, having already completed two Royal Yachting Association sailing weeks over the past two years in Kippford, Dumfries and Galloway.
This time though, she will be casting off and setting sail from Dorset enjoying the Jurassic Coastline and visiting France and the Channel Islands before sailing back to England.
John Donoghue, squadron's officer in charge, said: "I am very excited for Thea having won her place on board.
