Congratulations to French sailor Tom Goron, 12, who successfully sailed from the Isle of Wight to France today in an Optimist dinghy. He averaged a speed of 4 knots when he completed the 60 mile crossing in 14 hours and 21 minutes. There's a video of him sailing during the crossing here.
We are a family friendly sailing club and enjoy some of the best sailing waters on the North Kent coast. 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.
