Calling all Potential Sea Cadets
The Sea Cadet Corps is a nationwide voluntary uniformed
youth organisation, open to young people aged 12
to 18 and with Junior Sections open to those of
10 to 12 years of age, regardless of sex, religion
or race, and within the bounds of safety to themselves
and others, to those with special needs.
We have a rank structure modelled on that of
the Royal Navy, giving Cadets an opportunity to
progress and take up positions of responsibility
as they acquire skills and seniority. On reaching
18, many Cadets choose to stay on as adult instructors,
when their training and talents become invaluable.
If you're out to enjoy life as much as possible,
this is the place for you! Fun, friendship, adventure
and learning new skills is what we're about -
based on waterborne activities, but with lots
of other exciting things to learn and do on land
as well. Have a look and see what you could be
getting involved in.
If you're aged 10 - 18 and like the look of the
activities we have to offer, we'd love to meet
you. Topics that Cadets can expect to learn in
their Unit during their basic training include:
Basic seamanship and boatwork
First Aid and Fire Prevention/Sea Safety
Safety within the Unit
A wide variety of other subjects are
also available, both on the water and on dry land.
All Cadets learn about the Royal Navy, Merchant
Navy and other sea services. Courses are available
in anything from rock climbing and shooting, through
ITand communications to music and cook/steward.
While some subjects are taught in the local Units,
others involve courses at our training centres,
which can be found all over the country.
