Forty sea cadets from across B.C. gathered in Esquimalt Harbour Oct. 11 to 13 for the Provincial Qualifying Regatta, the first competition stage in a series that will culminate in a National Regatta in Kingston, ON, next summer.

Only 20 cadets from the weekend were selected to compete in the next stage, the National Qualifying Regatta (NQR), which will be held in April 2020. At the NQR, the eight strongest cadet sailors will be selected to form the Pacific National Team.

Sailing in the Cadet Program incorporates leadership, time management and quick thinking. The Sea Cadet program provides unique opportunities for youth to gain valuable skills such as leadership, citizenship and community service, while gaining a unique perspective of Canada, and the world, from a maritime viewpoint.

There are 1,150 sea cadets in 30 Corps throughout B.C., including a satellite corps in Haida Gwaii.
