Twenty-eight sea, army and air cadets from Newfoundland and Labrador are taking part in a three-day summer program at Octagon Pond in Paradise where they are taught basic sailing skills. The program, which is organized by the HMCS Avalon Nautical Training Centre, gives 12- to 18-year-olds experience being on the water as well as teamwork and leadership skills. — Photos by Rhonda Hayward/The Telegram
