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.

Slipway laying now Saturday 21 March

As the season rapidly approaches, it is time to lay the slipway and bridge the current gap between the club and the blue wobbly stuff. Tides have forced a change of date to Saturday 21 March in order to allow the lower sections to be laid first.  This is the day prior to our first race – so rather important to nail it!

This is our biggest logistics challenge every year and needs the support of all members to achieve both the slipway laying and other pre-season tasks around the club.

Sailing Matters

Hi folks

It was great to see so many people at the 'Sailing Matters / AGM' and although sad to see Club Officers retire, it was equally uplifting to see the new group take over. Attached is a copy of the minutes from the 'sailing matters' meeting.
