At the Salisbury Sea Cadets The Earl spoke with Cadets about how The Duke of Edinburgh's Award has helped them in their development, before taking to the water with them for a boat race.

He also spoke with Cadets about their 'DofEChallenge‚Ĩ' - a unique challenge for the Awards' 60th year, which was to 'row' from Salisbury to Windsor Castle.
