Over the years more than 10,000 Cadets have been built. Famous builders and brands include a.o. Jack Holt, Ron Beasley, Capel Sailing, Van Wettum, Rowsell & Morrison (R&M). Many of these boats were very well built and maintained and are still sailing and even competing!
The International Cadet Dinghy may only be built by a licenced builder. The International Cadet Class Association gives out official licences to selected quality boat builders around the world. It is our objective, in promoting the Cadet dinghy internationally, to have licenced builders on every continent where the Cadet is sailed.
Are you interested in starting a National Cadet Class Association or want to apply for a building licence? Please download our leaflet and contact our Secretariat.
