Congratulations to this year's national trophy and award winners, who were announced today.
Scarborough Unit has won the coveted Canada Trophy, which is awarded to the unit considered to have attained the highest standard over the year. Barrow-in-Furness Sea Cadets, last year's winner, has secured the Thomas Gray Memorial Trophy, which is the runner-up to the Canada Trophy and was won last year by Scarborough.
Ashington and Bexley & Lewisham units are joint winners of the Captain’s Cup, which goes to the unit that has made a particular impression on Captain Sea Cadets.
Captain Philip Russell RN, Captain Sea Cadets, said: "Congratulations to all our 2017 trophy winners. It's been another memorable year for Sea Cadets, and it's great to recognise the fantastic work that our units, volunteers and cadets have been doing up and down the country.
