Sea Cadet Élodie Rows to Gold on the Thames

Sea Cadet Élodie Rows to Gold on the Thames

What did you do?

After a panicky summer of not training at all, as my sea cadet unit does not have a Yole (sliding seat rowing boat), I won my first two competitions of sliding seat rowing racing as the Senior Single Girls entry at District and Area.

Then, just last week on the Thames on the Royal Victoria Docks in London, I came first in each of my multiple races and won Gold at Nationals!

What organization recognized the achievement?

The Sea Cadet Corps.

What are your interests?

My interests are dancing ballet, tap, modern and jazz. Also Royal Marines Cadets, cooking, writing stories and any water sports. I especially love sail racing, rowing racing, power boating, and yachting; anything fast or slightly crazy.

What are you inspired to do with your life?

I would absolutely love to become the first female to finish Royal Marines Commando entry and training, or the first female to finish the R.A.F Regiment entry and training.

I would also love to be a Yacht Master, being the Skipper of my own yacht and taking people out sailing on the sea. But I would also like to become a published author!

What are your favorite subjects and why?

My favourite subject is History (anything European, or British Military World War II history). I also liked Geography, and English -but only creative writing in English because the rest is slightly repetitive and boring.

Physics was amazing too, as I love electrical stuff and it helps with knowing about my boat engines.
