After their success at the recent District Competition our Juniors (Nozzers) made the trip to Play On Sports London Arena to battle out the medal places with the best from London Northern, Southern and Western districts. Accompanied by other teams from London Eastern District they managed to finish 3rd in their category. This was some our our teams first time at an Area competition and despite not winning the overall trophy their OIC Juniors (A/PO Julie Eagle) accompanied by A/PO Dan Eagle and parent supporters 'enjoyed' some enthusiastic singing from the team all the way back to the Unit !!

A small team of cadets entered the Jutland Trophy competition, a sailing competition where the cadets had to sail against the progressively worsening weather – with winds high enough to require the course being shortened.

4th/5th May 2013
Once again Maldon Sea Cadets will be attempted to sail a dinghy a full 24hours, through the night.They used all their sailing skills to continue sailing the bosun without capsizing, even when exhausted. The other competition gave them a challenge on the water, keeping them motivated and alert so they could ensure that they kept clear of any obstacles and avoided collision. The night shift was a challenge with just a torch and their wits to keep them on track! All cadets, although tired, had great fun and some worthwhile experience.Thank you for your support!! =]
19th/21st April 2013
This years Advex competition was hosted by Walton on the Naze’s Cadets. This competition consisted of many leadership challenges, such as a rope management game, an obstacle course, an assault course, a missile run, along with a mini archery challenge, a first aid challenge, a rowing challenge. As well as all of these challenges, there was also the normal challenging hike, and having to successfully set up camp and rest between challenges. Our cadet team came 8th overall, and considering the vastness of this competition they achieved a lot! =)
10th March 2013
This year’s shooting competition was substituted with an Archery Competition. Cadets did really well – especially with the very little practice we were able to due to not having an archery range.
16th February 2013
Our staff were invited to Walton Cadet Dinner and Dance valentines event. Yet another great evening - so a big thanks to the Walton Staff for organising this for us!

The Mayor of Maldon came to our unit for the weekend to teach five cadets to first class level the qulification of First Aid. In addition to this he also taught four members of staff First Aid at work - several of which were renewals. As the nature of the qualification is age restricted, the cadets will recieve the qualification of First Aid at work when they are old enough. A big well done to all the cadets and staff who achieved this award, and a big thank-you to the Mayor of Maldon, and his team for giving up their time to give this vital training! =)
We entered the Area Five-a-side football competition, even though there was heavy snow. Our teams managed to demonstrate once again that we are a strong unit with all of our teams doing well - and even securing a place in thr District Competition for both the senior girls and the mixed nozzers teams! So well done guys!

What can be said about this weekend - just wow! We are so proud of you all for what you achieved!! A huge congratulations is owed as Maldon Cadets breezed through the day resulting in a clean sweep - coming first not just in one, or two, but all three categories! So well done to the Nozzers team, the Junior team and the Senior team!! And thank you all for ensuring that we not only got the three trophies for each individual category, but also for helping us win the overall winners trophy!!I think we might need a new (bigger) trophy cabinet the way we are excelling!Thanks to all who made this possible, both with the training of the cadets before hand and with ensuring the day went smoothly

All I can think to say is, wow! Such a packed week, allowing the cadets to achieve a vast amount of qualifications!! Well done to all those who attended! Further I would like to thank all the staff, including those from other units who chipped in and made this all possible!! On top of teaching and assessing the cadets (and staff) various qualifications, somehow there was time to go bowling and to go to Adventure Island in Southend! Definitely a week orienteered around merriment, movement and all things maritime.
Thank you to all who attended the celebratory BBQ! We hope you all had fun and enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere!! Thank you to all those who took part in the various activities, be it the making of the horrid concoction to pour over our chairlady, commanding officer and our senior sailing instructor.
2nd - 6th July
Thank you all for all your support throughout this week. Flag week is essential in our fundraising for the year. So again thank you for all your help, be it through escorting cadets around the local area or the actual collection of money.
The next Rowing level was the Area competition – an elite competition with challenging oppositions. However our cadets remained un-phased and the Junior Boys team scored enough to claim 2nd place overall, and the Junior Girls cruised happily to 3rd overall.
A massive turn out from our cadets to the District rowing completion – which (after a few hours of practice) meant that we was able to achieve many medal positions and for some advance to the next level for the Area Rowing Regatta!! The cadets managed to achieve so many awards that we almost struggled to find room to bring them back with us. So well done Cadets!!!
A big thank-you to all those who attended the Athletics Competition! Great result with an overall 3rd!!
Congratulations to all the cadets who got through to the Area Sailing competition – they managed to get a total of four medal positions!! Such a great result!!
A small team of selected cadets woke up early to attempt an enduring test of their stamina – the 24 hour sail… The cadets had to race round a selected route as many times as they could in the 24 hours. This entailed sailing for long hours in the cold wet weather, making as few changes as possible to ensure a keeping within pole position. The cadets had to be completely self-sufficient (so no popping to the chippy!!) and had to be ready to sail at any time rotating the few cadets allowed in each team and be prepared for any weather in the forever changing conditions – whilst making the most of being off water (getting some shut eye and feeding their tummies!! ) Well done to all the cadets who attended this hugely challenging competition!
Many Sea Cadet units came to our unit to partake in an advex competition. They had to navigate their way through various check points, getting their next destination at the next check point, and so requiring quick thinking to stay ahead. After a nights camp they then had to navigate their way back to the unit to try to attempt various evolutions, such as first aid challenges, obstacle courses and archery. Well done to all those who attended this physically and mentally challenging competition!!
19th AprilWe had our annual inspection, the first one in our new unit. Along with the inspection our cadets also included a humorous demonstration of various things that they have learnt and enjoy in cadets - evolutions. These evolutions were demonstrated following the style of “X-factor” adding yet more comedy to the cadet’s superb imagination.
AC Thomas Conway and OC Jack Eagle were awarded with the Jack Petchey award at the Kensington Great Hall for their achievements as part of Maldon Sea Cadets. Well done lads!! =)
As a unit we achieved this prestigious award for being the most improved unit of the year. We could not have achieved this without the continued help and support that we receive. A big thank you to all of you who made this possible!
The cadets had a football competition on the 22nd January and we managed to enter many different teams to this! Wonderful turn out! Well done guys and girls! =)
