  • Mission statement

    The Sea Cadet experience gives young people from the ages of 10-18 a head start in life through nautical adventure and fun based on the traditions of the Royal Navy.
    Sea Cadets bring communities together. Young people have a place to go in the evening and at the weekend whilst learning nationally recognised new skills and gaining qualifications. They learn the vital importance of team-work and safety when sailing on cold Scottish waters. Cadets take part in civic events and parades meeting people from all over the city and gaining self-respect for their contributions.

    Whether at sea or on land, Sea Cadets offers an environment where young people can find new confidence and inspiration and gain nationally recognised qualifications. Across the UK 14,000 cadets from 400 units are challenging themselves and developing new skills through lots of activities based on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy, plus tons of adventure.
