Sea Cadets learn sailing skills on Lake Mindemoya

Cadets head out on Lake Manitou, learning to sail thanks to the help of officer members of Cadet Nautical Site.

LAKE MINDEMOYA—On June 16 and 17, Cadets from the Manitoulin Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps took part in a weekend of sailing on Lake Mindemoya. Cadets were instructed by highly qualified officer members of the Cadet Nautical Site and worked on their CAN Sail levels. 

Sailing is an important part of the Sea Cadet training program and is offered for free to all Sea Cadets across Ontario, and Canada. They can also obtain their sailing levels at HMCS ONTARIO Cadet Summer Training Establishment in the two, three and six week sail courses. The Cadets all had fun and for many, this was there first time in a sailboat.  

Up next, selected cadets are heading to summer camp in various programs at HMCS Ontario and two lucky cadets will be travelling outside on the province, Petty Officer second class Quentis Nelson Wood is heading to HMCS Quadra in British Columbia and Chief Petty Officer Second Class Nicholas Harper will be leaving for HMCS Acadia in Nova Scotia. We would like to wish all Cadets good luck on their courses.

Anyone interested on finding out more about Sea Cadets and asked to call (705) 805-0350. 

Cadets is a free program.
