Harrogate and District Sea Cadet Corps marching back to the Unit HQ after Remembrance Sunday

The Sea Cadet Family

This is a picture of the members of the Unit marching back to the headquarters of Harrogate and District Sea Cadets in Springfield Mews Harrogate. In the band you will see young cadets  and older ones, some adults in the band and others enthusiastically following alongside. Behind the band you will see cadets who today are marching behind but tomorrow or next month may be sailing or rowing, taking command of a squad of other cadets or doing a weeks course at a naval base learning engineering or power boating or first Aid. There is something for everyone in Harrogate and District Sea Cadets, whatever your abilities, age or interests. We have great volunteers to instruct and encourage you backed up by a team of Trustees who make sure you are safe, have plenty of resources and the Charity is well run. Whether you want to join us as a cadet or an adult volunteer get in touch with us at the unit (see contact details) and we will make you very welcome.

Time scale for a new boat

Time scale for a new boat

The idea for a new boat is suggested and then approved by the management team and instructors. The management team apply for match funding and the cadets raise the rest through a 24 sail that took place in August. The team make sure that all paperwork and logistics are effective. The boat is ready at the makers, tbe boat is collected, assembled and checked. This all takes place during the "off season" so as soon as the cadets start boating again in May 2019 it is all ready for them. Well done all, particularly the cadets who did the hard work and this is the reward.

Great North Swim

Great North Swim

Harrogate Sea Cadets is part of a parent charity (The Marine Society and Sea Cadets) and we always love to support them as well. PO (SCC) Andy Langford took part in The Great North Swim on Lake Windermere in May this year and raised nearly £ 600 for the Sea Cadets. It was his first (and possibly last) open water swim. Many thanks to the supporters who went along to cheer him on.

24 Hour Sail

24 Hour Sail

At Harrogate Sea Cadets we always try to keep moving forward and the cadets were part of that. We recently held a 24 hour sail-a-thon where over £ 1000 was raised by the cadets and their supporters to help fund a brand new RS Zest sailing boat. The Zest is a single handed craft which will give the cadets more individual responsibility and fun. Many thanks to all who donated but mainly to the cadets who braved wind rain and tiredness to achieve this amazing challenge.
