The Sea Cadet in South Africa movement traces its origins back to the first South African Training Ship (TS) located on Woodstock beach Cape Town. TS Woltemade was opened on 08 June 1905. The movement spread throughout South Africa and currently there are 15 Training Ships; 9 are active and developing those values and skills required to ensure that the maritime industry is provided with recruits who have a passion for the sea.
The motto “Honour and Skill” of the South African Sea Cadets is proudly displayed under their badge. These words embody the core values of the corps which are Integrity, Excellence and Service and are instilled in the Sea Cadets via their training and interaction with competent instructors. These three words embody the cardinal points of a Sea Cadet’s Compass of Life and include: honesty, morality, loyalty, responsibility, discipline, accountability, self-respect and obedience.
The Sea Cadets also teach the necessary knowledge and provides practical skills underwritten by accredited courses necessary for those who wish to follow a career at sea within the maritime industry.
The land-based Training Ships located around the country provide a safe space with competent instructors at which training can take place. Training takes place on Fridays or Saturdays or Sundays depending on the training ship involved, with leadership camps scheduled during the school holidays. The highlight of the year is the annual camp hosted by the SA Navy in Simon’s Town.
Sea Cadets are taught and assessed on practical skills including:
- First Aid
- Survival at sea
- Fire Fighting
- Restricted Maritime Radio
Several of the courses are certified and accredited via national bodies providing the Sea Cadets with the necessary certification towards their chosen career.
Whilst undergoing the training they also develop their leadership, team building and self-discipline under the watchful eye of experienced Instructors.
Funding is raised via the Sea Cadets annual fees and camp fees as well as via bequeaths pledges and donations. Funding is required in order to support Sea Cadets whose families may not be in a position to fully fund their activities.
Should you wish to contribute either funding or materially to the South Africa Sea Cadets please contact the National Treasurer, Mr Deon Lincoln on 082 821 9361 or firstname.lastname@example.org or P.O. Box 7681, Newton Park, Port Elizabeth, 6055.
