A performance by girls of Mumbai Sea Cadet Corps has left netizens delighted after it went viral on social media.
The undated 2.07-minute clip was shared by former Naval officer Arun Prakash. “Mumbai Sea Cadet Corps girls delight, once again, with a display of ‘sailor’s Hornpipe.’ Accompanied by their drummers and the band,” tweeted Prakash.
In the clip, which has now garnered over 71,000 views, the girls can be seen performing in a perfectly synchronised manner on the ‘The Sailor’s Hornpipe’ — the traditional hornpipe melody that is linked with the origins of the Royal Navy.

They are a unique bunch. Saw them perform live during the International Fleet Review at Visakhapatnam. The choreography and spontaneity are a treat for the eyes.
