Cadets at Cargreen

CYC has a thriving cadet section providing recreational sailing and structured sail training for children aged from 10 to 18 years.
Although staffed entirely by enthusiastic volunteers, sail training is provided by RYA qualified dinghy instructors and all sessions have safety boat cover. Cadets do not need to purchase or own their own dinghy (although many of them do) as the club has its own fleet of dinghies which the cadets can use (ten Laser Picos, two RS Fevas, two RS Visions and one Topper).

Cadets must have their own, well fitting, buoyancy aid as these are not provided by the club.

Cadets meet every Friday evening at 1800 between 25 April and 26 September except where shown.

The links to the Application form is in the right hand column. They will open as pdf files in a new window.

Please contact the Cadet Officer for membership enquires, to arrange an informal visit or taster session.
