As the 2013 season approaches fast excitement is mounting at the Waldringfield Cadet Squadron. At around 30 boats, Waldringfield Sailing Club has one of the strongest and most active fleets in the country. Open Events for the season include Cadet Training on 4 Sundays through March and April, the Easter Egg open on 29/30 March, Half Term open training on 30/31 May, the Waldringfield Cadet Open on 22/23rd June and the Cartoon Open on 7/8 September.

The highlight as always will be Waldringfield Cadet Week which is open to Cadets and Laser Radials aged under 18. The week is sponsored by local chandlery Seamark Nunn and runs from 5th to 9th August. It's always action packed with evening events each day, a Pimms party for the parents and usually attracts in excess of 30 Cadets and a dozen Laser Radials. Free camping is available at the Club and the River Deben is quite simply one of the most beautiful east coast rivers on which to spend a week in the summer.

Visitors are always welcome and are guaranteed competitive racing, interesting courses, and the chance to make friendships for life. The Squadron also works hard at training the kids with a number of Junior Sailing Taster Sessions on Saturday mornings. We are always keen to add new members as helms and crews.
