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:


Parade training,
Fire prevention,
Ship's routine
Basic seamanship and boatwork
Physical training
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.
