For nine days this August, thirteen members of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps "Royal Sovereign" have been working hard to develop their sailing skills in Sault Ste. Marie.

Two instructors from the Regional Cadet Sailing School (Central) located at HMCS Ontario in Kingston, Ontario arrived with a trailer of six sailboats for the local cadets to use during their instruction.

The Algoma Sailing Club allowed the sea cadets and the sailing school to utilize their facility for the entire nine days.

For a few sea cadets, this is their first time sailing a dinghy. For others, it has been a chance to fine-tune their sailing skills in preparation for next month's Northern Ontario Regatta.

The top two teams will advance to the Provincial Regatta next June.

The top six teams will then advance to the National Regatta next August.

The cadets can also qualify for Canadian Yachting Association (CYA) White Sail levels which are required for their promotion to Petty Officer First Class.

All of this is provided at no cost to the cadets.

The weather has been fantastic and the cadets' smiles have been huge! This adds up to a picture-perfect opportunity to highlight the local sea cadet corps and the Algoma Sailing Club.
