About the International Cadet

The Cadet Class is considered to be a family – where the inclusive culture is supportive of all sailors. Sailors that move onto senior sailing often say the culture is what they miss the most.

In Australia the class has a rich history over many years and is currently raced in the Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria. It is one of very few classes where 7-year-olds compete with and work with 17-year-olds, as well as a class where males and females compete on a level playing field. Skippers learn to lead, mentor and manage their typically younger crews, developing great life skills that hold them in good stead throughout their sailing journey.

“As a member of the International Cadet Class I promise to observe the class rules at all times and to further the aims of the class. I shall do my best to foster understanding and friendship throughout the world. I shall never attempt to win a race by any means other than fair sailing.”
