An Ashcroft Sea Cadet is one of 50 sailors competing for the top prize in the 2013 National Sea Cadet Regatta in Kingston, Ontario.

Cadet Ian Curran from RCSCC AVENGER in Ashcroft is representing B.C. The grade 10 student at Ashcroft Secondary is partnered with Cadet Quinn Lessing in boat #23.

The National Regatta is held each summer at the Royal Military College in Kingston. Sailing takes place over four days in August in the fresh waters of Lake Ontario.

The top 50 Sea Cadet sailors from across the country compete in the National Regatta. Each team consists of a skipper and crew who competed in local and provincial/multi-provincial regattas to win a berth in the National Regatta.

The National Regatta is an exciting opportunity for the best sea cadet sailors to test their skills. The challenge of the National Regatta provides not only the ability to compete, but also a rewarding sailing experience.

The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet program is offered to youth between the ages of 12-18 and is delivered in partnership between the Navy League of Canada and the Department of National Defence.
