LC Nikolas, Navy Board Cadet for London Area

I'm Leacing Cadet Nikolas. I’m 17 and the Navy Board Cadet for London Area. I joined Sea Cadets in 2009 when I was 10. I can honestly say there has never been a time when I have been bored. Being in Sea Cadets has given me so many opportunities and life skills.

I was extremely lucky to take part in the Diamond Jubilee on board TS Royalist in the Avenue of Sail. At events like this I have met many members of the Royal family and even more celebrities! I've taken part in the Invictus games opening ceremony, and performed many carpet guards, to name just a few events.

I love to row and pipe; I always look forward to the competitions and have on occasion competed at national level. For me the best opportunity has to be getting chosen as the Navy Board Cadet for London Area, representing my fellow cadets.

During my seven years as a Sea Cadet, I have been on many courses at lots of national training centres, as well as at area and district level. I've made so many friends from all over the country that I always know someone on the courses I attend. I have completed my 1st class Seamanship. At the moment I'm working towards completing my 1st class first aid qualification and becoming a Rowing Instructor. 

This year I have been accepted on the international exchange program – I am going to Japan in July and I can't wait!
