Saturday 14 August to Tuesday 17 August

Online entry is now open for Cadet Week 2021!  Four fabulous days of sailing and fun, with a focus on having fun on the water. For many, the Covid pandemic has meant little time on the water over the past year so this is a fantastic opportunity for sailors of all abilities to improve their skills and have lots of fun. Though we made the decision to slightly shorten the programme this year, there will be lots of old favourites to enjoy: The long-distance race and Treasure Hunt, the much-loved rounders match followed by pizza, karaoke and the always fantastic fancy dress competition and disco. The week will of course end with our final-day, formal Prizegiving Dinner.

There will be River Racing for all dinghy classes including RS Fevas, Scows, Lasers, Toppers and Optimists, with entry also open to sailors aged 18-21 by prior arrangement. There will also be a coached Optimist Regatta Fleet, as well as sailing on the Pond at ‘Boro Water.

All meals are provided for all sailors. There is also a non-sailor rate, where all meals and social activities are included.

Your Cadet Week 2021 T-shirt will be free, included in your entrance fee.  Please can you let us have your child’s T-shirt size so we can order them in advance.

We’ll have some great evening meals for parents too, which can be booked in advance of Cadet Week – more on that soon.

Our Fundraising BBQ returns again on Sunday night – a wonderful feast followed by our annual bucket shake and raffle – with some fantastic prizes to be won (and we’re always on the hunt for prizes!). We have a long-standing tradition that all parents and carers provide a contribution to the fundraising BBQ.  You’ll see a check- box on the entry form – we’d be so grateful if you could help us by bringing a salad or a pudding.

Cadet Week is run by volunteers, so entrants’ parents are expected to join in the fun and give us a hand – whether it’s running an activity, launching boats, crewing on a rib or helping out at the pond.  Whilst we love your children, as minors they remain your responsibility at all times so we ask that you, or a nominated guardian, are on site at all times.

We will be monitoring the latest guidance on Covid regulations and will ensure we run all activities in line with this guidance.

If you won a trophy in 2019 please can you ensure it is engraved and returned to the club as soon as possible, but by Friday 6 August latest.  Thank you!

£100 Early bird offer for bookings before 16 July. Now extended to 6th August!
