Sea Cadets boat destroyed in fire

just why?

A four-metre long glass fibre yacht belonging to the Sea Cadets in Bristol has been destroyed by fire.

Firefighters were called to Cumberland Basin Road in the early hours of Sunday.

An Avon Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the fire was believed to have been deliberately started.

Patrick Wood from the Sea Cadets said it was thought the boat had been stolen, taken to the Cumberland Basin and then set alight.

He said the boat which is used about three times a week, was berthed opposite the Harbourmaster's office.

"There are other boats there which are of far greater value, why they chose our boat I don't know.

"To replace this will cost about £12,000 which is money that could have been spent on a lot better things."
