Findhorn Cadet Week 2019

Cadet Week will be on Monday 8th July to Friday 12th July. 

What a fantastic turn out we had last year, we want to continue this trend, however for safety purposes we have to limit the number of children that we have on the water at anyone time to 30. We will be going with a first come first served approach so please get your names down quickly as we don’t want to disappoint anyone.

Cadet week has traditionally been run for cadets aged 8 – 18, over the past couple of years we have had a few younger members taking part in the full week. These members have sailing experience and have had a dedicated adult/older sibling assigned to being with them on the water. If you feel that your child has the experience to take part in all the activities (and are under the age of 8) and you are available to accompany them on the water then we will again consider incorporating them in the full week.

For non-sailing siblings and mini-cadets (3-7) many of the land based activities that we do during the week are suitable for them, it was great to have them along last year and see their enjoyment. If you would like your child to take part then please let us know.

To ensure that we have enough volunteers in place to support all our activities and to order our t-shirts, we am asking that everyone who wishes to take part in cadet week has let me know by Friday 28th June at the very latest. (If you would like to order a t-shirt for a mini-cadet then please let me know).

We will be creating a plan of our activities and asking for volunteers to populate it over the next few months. The support of all you wonderful adults helps make a great week for the cadets so please put your name down for anything that you can. If there is anything specific you would like us to do this year then please let me know and we will do our best to include it in our activities. The tides are very late (or very very early) this year so we will be doing our best to make the most of our time on and off the water.

  • Cost of full week for cadet members: £35
  • Cost for cadets (8-18) not sailing: £25
  • Cost for mini-cadets: £10 (price of t-shirt if they wish one).
