Help us build our new ship!

Sea Cadets are fundraising for a new flagship. Across the country we're asking all 400 Sea Cadet units to get on board with this massive appeal to raise 250,000 to help toward the cost of a new ship. 

Why do we need a flagship?

Since 1971 the Sea Cadets flagship TS Royalist has been taking cadets on a voyage at sea where they can experience the most exhilarating challenges. Whether it’s hoisting the sails or navigating the waves, nothing compares to the feeling of being out at sea, taking on challenging nautical training and pulling together with other cadets to safely navigate Britain’s coastline. This is teamwork taken to another level.

Why is it so important?

To make sure that Sea Cadets will keep having this chance, we need to raise enough funds to build a replacement. Royalist is over 40yrs and coming to the end of her working life. Our new ship will make sure we continue to offer thousands of cadets the chance to sail at sea until the mid-21st century.

In memory of the late Captain Eric Beetham - he gave a lot to the Sea Cadets, and asked for donations instead of flowers on the occasion of his death. This was a project very dear to his heart.

My daughter hasn't quite found her 'sea legs' yet but if she sticks with it, one day may get a chance to sail on the new Royalist. Good luck :)
