An intrepid group of cadets from Warsash Maritime Academy, part of Southampton Solent University, are preparing to brave the elements and experience what every seafarer hopes they never have to do for real - spend 24 hours in a liferaft.

On Friday 21 March 39 Officer Cadets will climb into five liferafts, which will be secured to two buoys afloat in the waters of the River Hamble, to experience first hand just what it would be like if they were cast adrift with their boat sinking behind them. Not only is this challenge a chance to enhance their training, but it is also a great opportunity to raise funds and awareness for those whose difficult times will last a great deal longer than 24 hours - UK families living with cancer.
