The Sea Cadets is a charity that helps launch young people for life today whatever they want to do after school, and helps seafarers to keep learning all their lives. This charity has had a huge part of all our lives with most of us have joined when we were young.
A huge part of a young persons development is through experiencing adventure, challenge, fun and learning new skills. We are riding 100 miles to raise money, awareness and help continue the huge impact this charity has on young people in todays society similar to the life changing experiences we all have had.
“The Sea Cadets is changing lives all over the UK, our cadets get opportunities that help them develop self-esteem, confidence and develop a better feeling of belonging within their local community. I hope that we can raise our fundraising target by cycling in the Prudential 100 and provide much needed equipment and support to Sea Cadet units so even more young people can benefit" – Tye Shuttleworth, Head of Inshore Boating Sea Cadets
"The Sea Cadets has given me life changing skills, opportunities and confidence to achieve a career in a industry I love. Without this charity I would not know where I would be. I am raising money to continue vast opportunities being offered to young people and to continue to support more young people taking up boating to improve confidence." - Jack Mitchell, Chief Instructor Sea Cadet Training Centre Caledonia
"I've been a volunteer with the Sea Cadets for a number of years and was delighted last year to be offered an opportunity to work for them in Weymouth. Some of my co-workers mentioned Ride 100 miles in London so I though it would be a good chance to get in shape. I have never been a particularly sporty person - in January when I started training for this I don't think I'd ever ridden a bike with gears before, let alone a proper road bike! Getting motivated to do this is yet another way the Sea Cadets has improved my life." - Sharon Scurlock, Afloat Training Administrator .
"The Sea Cadets is a fantantic charity providing amazing opportunities to young people. I wouldn't have had the opportunities to work in the watersports industry without the support from the charity. I am doing the 100 mile bike ride to raise money for sea cadets so they can continue to support young people with new opportunities and access to new equipment" Sam Green, Chief Instructor Thrapston Boat Station.
"I'm Cycling for the Sea Cadets for the chance to give back to a charity that has already given me so much in life. In 2010 I was given the opportunity to spend six weeks at one of thier training centres, getting real world experience and life skills through watersports. This has enabled me to travel the world teaching sailing. Now I work for the charity at the same centre, giving more young people the chance to get the best possible head start in life." Callum Seggie, Afloat Instructor SCTC Weymouth.
