Members of two Northwest Sea Cadet units were on the road this past weekend as members of the RCSCC Captain Cook Sea Cadets in Prince Rupert and those from RCSCC Babine in Smithers travelled to Vernon for some training on the lakes of the North Okanagan.

The training took place with the North Okanagan Sailing Association which operates at Okanagan Landing just west of Vernon.

The weekend one of a fast pace to learning the safety rules and operational themes of sailboats in a pretty nice setting.

The Northwest Cadets had previously conducted their training at a facility in Smithers, however it has not reopened since the time of COVID, with the facility facing maintenance and equipment challenges.

Global BC News featured the trip to Vernon as part of their news coverage of Monday.
