Cadets & Otters
Younger sailors at the Gunfleet
This section has information of interest to the Cadets (12 to 17 years) and Otters (under 12 years) at the club...
Under the guidance of the Club's Cadet Officer Claire Aylen, supported by a Cadet Steering Group, the younger members of the Club have great fun on and off the water, and play an active part down at the Gunfleet.
The main fleets of dinghy for Cadets and Otters are the Topper, Topaz, Laser, and Hobie 405. There is a Cadet Committee which works closely with the Cadet Steering Group to ensure there is always plenty going on for the younger members of the Gunfleet Sailing Club, climaxing with the Cadet Week in August; not forgetting Sailing On Saturday (SOS) and Cadet Day as part of the Club's Regatta Weekend. Gunfleet is the place to be if you are under 18.
