We are a family friendly sailing club and enjoy some of the best sailing waters on the North Kent coast. Less than 15 minutes from the end of the M2 motorway and 45 minutes from the M25, our favourable location and our own slipway access mean that we are able to launch and recover at most states of the tide. We have members of all ages and abilities, and anyone interested in sailing with us can be sure of receiving plenty of help and encouragement.
