Clacton Sea Cadets

Petty Officer Ben ChandlerBen is the Officer in Charge of Clacton Sea Cadets and donates a lot of time and effort to ensure every young person achieves their full potential. Ben and his extremely supportive and committed team of staff offer young people in the local area the platform they need to develop into young respectful adults with many skill and qualifications to support them through life. The cadets, aged between 10 – 18 years old, are offered more life changing opportunities than any other average young person. Some have flown to Scotland by themselves, some have met royalty, some even have the chance to live alongside the royal navy for a week, many have either received or working towards their Duke of Edinburgh award. Every cadet have the chance to travel and experience everything that Sea cadets have to offer, details of which can be found online at All of this would not be possible without the kind and generous work that the team of staff at Clacton Sea Cadets put in, all being lead by Petty Officer Ben Chandler.
