National Drill and Piping

National Drill and Piping Competition 2022

Everyone had a great time at the National Drill and Piping Competition which took place on 23 and 24 April at HMS Raleigh.

It was brilliant for our Sea Cadets family to be back together again. This fantastic event is the culmination of months’ worth of practising to perform a routine with hundreds of drill movements to music from memory.

Thank you to all volunteers for the hours of hard work before, during, and after the event, it is very much appreciated. The cadets showed the highest values of commitment and teamwork throughout the event, so should be proud of their achievements!

In attendance was CEO Martin Coles, the Former First Sea Lord and MSSC President Admiral Sir Philip Jones, Captain Sea Cadets, and the Commander of HMS Raleigh. We all spent time talking to the cadets and having tours of Torpoint Sea Cadets’ new unit building.

Naval Club Donation to Sea Cadets

Naval Club Donation to Sea Cadets

We are extremely grateful for the generous donation from the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Officers’ Association (RNVR).

This means more boating opportunities for sea cadets, including a new boating hub in Wallasey and four RS21 keel boats for the national fleet. It also funds 132 RS Zests, 120 kayaks, micro adventure grants to increase boating opportunities for cadets, and a twin screw displacement vessel on the River Thames for training cadets and seafarers.

We plan to name one of our vessels in honour of RNVR and display plaques on the keel boats as a constant reminder of the association’s generosity.

Chairman of the RNVR Officers' Association, Simon Wilson, said: “We are very pleased to make these resources available to Sea Cadets investing in young people’s futures. Playing our part in boosting the confidence, inspiration and opportunities of cadets across the UK also means that our legacy will live on through them.”



Sea Cadets is deeply saddened by the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness served as Admiral of the Sea Cadets Corps from 1952 to 1992 as well as having served the Royal Navy as Lord High Admiral of the Fleet and Captain General Royal Marines.

“We mourn the loss of Prince Philip, who we considered part of the Sea Cadets’ family,” says Captain Phil Russell RN, Captain Sea Cadets.

“Sea Cadets remembers with affection The Duke of Edinburgh’s 40 years of dedication and service to cadets and his continued deep interest in our work launching young people for life.

Many of our cadets have also greatly benefitted from His Royal Highness’s inspirational Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme which continues to enable many thousands of young people around the world to prepare for their future lives with confidence, skill and positivity. His Royal Highness leaves the world an extraordinary and enduring legacy.”

Ensigns across Sea Cadets are being flown at half-mast.
