Over the past five years, the City Livery Yacht Club has supported the Bexley & Lewisham Sea Cadet Unit by donation to the two outstanding cadets of the year. Our Commodore usually attends the Presentation Ceremony to present the cheques.
At present the Bexley & Lewisham Sea Cadet Unit has around 20 Senior Cadets, 10 Junior Cadets and 8 members of staff. The unit is on target to be recognised as a full Royal Marines Cadets Detachment in early 2015.
The Cadets work hard towards gaining qualifications and notably, several Cadets have gained First Class (or Advanced) qualifications, the highest qualification Cadets can achieve in that chosen field, in First Aid and Catering. Also, the Cadets work hard towards waterborne pursuits with many gaining power boating, rowing, sailing, offshore and windsurfing qualifications.
