The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corp 7 Captain Cook sea cadets took to the grounds of the curling rink for their 89th annual ceremonial review on Wednesday, June 7.
Demonstrating the skills and training they’ve received in the past year, cadets began the evening marching into the curling rink parking lot.
Friends and family watched as Commander Brad Henderson of Victoria and other dignitaries inspected cadet uniforms. After the inspection, awards were given to select cadets to recognize their hard work throughout the year.
Sea cadets not only learn about naval and maritime standards by participating in activities on and off the water, but also learn principles of citizenship, fitness and leadership.
The Captain Cook cadet corp is one of Canada’s oldest with nearly 90 years of service.
