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 Shelby Fowell, 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 three Topazes which compliment the dinghies privately owned by Cadets and Otters themselves. Gunfleet is the place to be if you are under 18 and would like to have a go at sailing, either on the helm or crewing for someone more experienced.
