A sea cadet from Summerland will compete in the National Sea Cadet Regatta this summer after a recent first-place finish at a qualifying event.

Joshua Fitzpatrick will compete in the event in Kingston, Ont., along with his skipper Ilya Sharikov of Victoria.

The two earned the first-place finish at the annual National Qualifying Regatta in Victoria March 29 to April 2.

Fitzpatrick travels to RCSCC Grenville in Kelowna to participate in Sea Cadet training each week.
