Cadets’ regatta triumph

Buxton Sea Cadets excelled themselves at the North West Area sailing regatta when a new, young team brought home the Topper trophy, having won first, second and third places. They came second in the Pico race and fourth in the Bosun class.

They are now preparing for a week of sea sailing at Weymouth at the end of August, followed by the national championships in October.

The Unit is hoping to commence building the first phase of its long-awaited modern extension this autumn.

The Cadets still require funds for phases two and three. Anyone wishing to make a donation please contact the trustees on
