EYC Cadet Week
Aug 9 – Aug 13 all-day
EYC Cadet Week @ Essex Yacht Club

Essex Yacht Club Cadet Week 2022.

3rdCB are normally invited to enter Scouts/Explorers into their annual Cadet Week – a week of racing, fun & games, and social activities based at EYC’s HQ “Wilton”. Members may borrow dinghies from The Den to enter (single or double handed). It’s a really fun week both on and off the water, and the sailing experience of Scouts who’ve entered previously has increased immeasurably.

Official bits – Please note that this is not a Scouting activity, one parent is expected to be present at the Yacht Club during the day to help out with the event and be responsible for their child. Prior sailing experience is required for the use of 3rdCB boats – RYA Stage 2 and experience sailing Topazes is generally the minimum standard, but please talk to the the sailing instructors about it beforehand. We’re not able to provide tuition during the week.

Email for details.

3rdCB will assist with safety boat cover.
