As a Sea Cadet you will test your talents and stamina and develop new skills to give you a head start in life. You will also get the chance to make new friends and have fun.

You can join us as a cadet if you are 10-18. Visit the main Sea Cadet site to see a full range of what's on offer.

If you would like to join our Sea Cadet Unit's compliment of approximately 40 cadets, we have a Junior Cadet section which can take cadets from the age of 10, and a senior section which takes cadets from 12 to 18 years old.

From April through to September, we have a busy boating calendar where RYA Sailing qualifications can be gained, as well as Rowing qualifications.

During the winter months we concentrate on Drill and cadet promotions.

To join, either drop us an email or give us a call on unit nights (answer machine at other times), and we can arrange a tour of our unit and give you the necessary paperwork. We have to insist that you attend your "introduction" night with a parent or guardian, as we need to explain some things to them as well.

Junior Cadets 10-12

This is about having fun and making friends. You'll take part in lots of events and activities like sailing, canoeing and abseiling, plus learn about first aid and communications.

Sea Cadets 12-18

Get to grips with subjects both on water and land as part of basic training, all on a nautical theme. You can take part in courses and competitions ranging from rock climbing and shooting to music, power boating and sailing. These can give you a head start in life and boost your confidence, plus it's good fun.

What does it cost?

Parade nights cost £3.00 per week (for 2 sessions), and there are small charges for weekends and camps. However, we aim to ensure that cost is not a prohibitive factor in the Sea Cadets, and confidential grants and bursaries are available to families who are unable to meet the cost of activities. We are a small self supporting charity and would ask that, in return for any grants etc, the cadets assist at our annual charity collections and fundraising events. There is also a uniform deposit of £25 payable after 6 weeks of attendance before a uniform is issued to the cadet.
