    MVS opens boat to public

    Members of the Maritime Volunteer Service (MVS) at Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, are ready to welcome the public on board the sea training charity's 17 metre long ex-Royal Navy launch East Sussex 1 over the Bank Holiday weekend.

    East Sussex 1 will be moored at Sovereign Harbour's Waterfront and open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm each day. Children will also be welcome on board, and have the opportunity to 'steer' the ship, as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

    The volunteers are always happy to share their experiences of volunteering in the MVS and anybody interested in boating or the sea is also welcome to come along to one of their Tuesday evening meetings to find out more. The MVS welcomes everyone, from complete beginners right up to master mariners.
