New safety craft


Commodore Martin (RNZN) officially launched TS Amokura's newly acquired safety boat on a windswept Wellington day in late October. The safety boat is aptly named "Rauora", the Maori word "to save or rescue".

Cadet and families present all got to try out the new craft which cruises comfortably at 25 knots.

The Commodore mentioned that the craft would be a great asset to the Sea Cadet Unit and will enhance the safety of cadets when out on the water.
