2017 ROYAL CANADIAN SEA CADET NATIONAL REGATTA
The National Regatta is held each summer in Kingston, Ontario. Races took place over four days during August in Lake Ontario. The top 50 sea cadet sailors from across the country competed in the National Regatta.
Each team consisted of a skipper and crew who competed in local and provincial/multi-provincial regattas to win a berth in the National Regatta. Ten coaches accompanied the sea cadets, along with over 50 support staff and volunteers who worked throughout the weeklong competition.
The National Regatta is an exciting opportunity for the best sea cadet sailor to test their skills. The challenge of the National Regatta not only provides the opportunity to compete, but also participate in a rewarding sailing experience.
