The Confederation

is a unique association

of maritime towns and villages

in Kent and East Sussex,

dating back 1000 years.

In the centuries

before the Tudor Kings of England

first developed a standing navy,

the men and ships of the Cinque Ports provided a fleet

to meet the military and transportation needs of their Royal masters.

With good reason, these small ports

have been dubbed the Cradle of the Royal Navy.
