Who is this year's Cadet Captain?

Felix Arthur was voted in by the Cadets during Registration night in January. He is the link between cadets and the coordinators and helps organise winter theory nights.

What do our Cadets do?

Meeting throughout the year on a Friday evening, the winter time is taken up with social activities in the club house.

A programme of events for the winter season is published in advance including both Fitting Out and Laying Up Suppers, Capsize practice at the local swimming pool, Cadet Week, and Registration night, which is generally held in January.

Our first on water sailing session will be in early April and typically every other Friday dependant on tides until early September.

On the non sailing nights the groups may meet for short theory sessions (depending on instructor availability).

Who can join in?

Each Cadet will need to be a member of the club and be aged between 8 and 18 years.

Please be aware numbers are limited, before joining the club as a member, check there is availability with the cadet leaders.

  • Youth Stages 1 to 4
  • Start Racing
