Deck cadet - Li Xin Cong

Deck cadet - Li Xin Cong

It's full steam ahead for new starter Li Xin Cong.

The 23 year-old from China is one of V.Ships latest recruits and is delighted to be setting sail on a career for life.

He said: "My uncle went to sea and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. Being able to travel the world makes your eyes big as you are able to step outside your own country.

"V.Ships is an excellent name in the shipping industry and I was very happy to join their cadet training programme.

"I have been given very good support from everyone, from the initial training to now when I'm o-board, but you're learning new things every day. It is a very good life."
