BALLYMENA Army Cadet Force member, Megan McGaughey has been selected to take part in the Lord Dannatt's Round Britain Challenge.
The 17 year old, the only cadet selection from Northern Ireland, will take part in the event which is  part of the commemorations to remember 100 years since the end of World War One.
She will be sailing on a specially adapted tall ship on a 10 day sail on the 3rd leg of the Challenge from Belfast to Cardiff.
The Lord Dannatt's Round Britain challenge consists of Army Cadets and ex service men and woman who have injuries or disabilities sailing from port to port changing crew every 10 days.
 Over the 10-day period, Megan will be buddied with one of the Veterans manning the ship in their shift, bonding and  listening to their experiences.
