To give young people the best possible head start in life, through nautical adventure and fun
As a Sea Cadet young people flourish, learn key life skills and achieve qualifications in a range of areas, all of which boosts their confidence as they prepare for the rest of their lives. Sea Cadets offers a chance to broaden life experiences - whether that's challenges and experiences like rowing around the UK, sailing on a tall ship, crewing a yacht around the Scottish islands (most of which is heavily subsidised) or meeting weekly to work together at their unit.Why the community needs us
