Exeter sea cadets

About Us


The Sea Cadet Corps wouldn't run without adult instructors. These dedicated people are fully qualified to offer training in many different disciplines, from Seamanship to Marine Engineering, Communications to Expedition Training.

For all boatwork activities, instructors are qualified by the relevant governing body to teach that sport.

The Unit is run by a Unit Management Committee. The Chairman is always looking for enthusiastic supporters who are willing to help raise the funds necessary to keep our cadets afloat.


Exeter Sea Cadets is one of 400 Sea Cadet Units nationwide. We offer training to young people between the ages of 10-18, enabling personal development and valuable life skills.

At any time there are between 13 to 30 cadets on strength, supported by 11 adult instructors. Young people aged 10 and 11 join the Junior Sea Cadet section, following their own unique training plan. At age 12, cadets join the senior section and become fully involved in Unit life. Young men aged 13 and above may join the Royal Meine Cadets (RMC). Sorry ladies, the MCD is presently only open to the chaps.
