Like sailing? Want to try sailing? Aged 5-17? Want to have a good time?

Cadet Week ’21 at Walton and Frinton Yacht Club is the place to be.

It’s six days of great sailing for 5-17-year-olds in the glorious Walton Backwaters, using either club boats – Optimists, Teras, Picos, Fevas and Hartleys – or their own. This year’s event runs from Sunday, August 22nd   to Friday, August 27th.

Every day there’s racing and boating for both experienced sailors and learners, supported by our team of RYA instructors. Trophies will be awarded for each of the classes and for making special contributions to a fun week…this could anything from a spectacular capsize to being a first-class team player.

We’ve a busy after-sail social programme, ending with a prize-giving barbecue and the Great Karaoke Night…you have been warned! There’s also a pier visit, supporters v. sailors beach games, competitions, a sailors’ dinner and a disco.

Our club chef, Rob, is determined to see everyone well fuelled…pre race brunch baps, a special Cadet Week ’21 menu, afternoon teas, tuck shop and ice cream bar.

As with any event involving so many, we need loads of ‘bodies’ to keep the show on the water. Volunteers are welcomed for the shore parties and support boats, for race control and social dos. Please give it some thought and email Emma at with your offers. We’ll be delighted to consider anything…don’t be shy.

This is going to be a great week for our youngsters. They’ve had a tough time of it. We want Cadet Week ’21 to put it all behind them.
