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 Adam Searles, 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 for single handed sailing and the Hobie 405 for two person sailing, with the Topaz dinghies a great starter/training boat. The Club owns three Toppers and two Topazes which compliment the dinghies privately owned by Cadets and Otters. There is a Cadet Committee which works closely with the Cadet Officer 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 Cadet Day as part of the Club's Regatta Weekend. Gunfleet is the place to be if you are under 18.
