The Sea Cadet Corps is a national organisation for the development of young people. Its rank structure is 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. The remit of the Sea Cadets is to provide fun, friendship, adventure and learning new skills based on waterborne and land based activities. Cadets also participate in community events such as bag packing for charity, HMS Dasher Memorial and Remembrance Sunday.
