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.

CLUB Cruise - Sunday 31 May

On Sunday 31 May we will once more attempt to cruise out of sight of the club in as many boats as we need to get the most members afloat. the current forecast is for plenty of sunshine and a stiff breeze to beat into.

Uncle Tony the cruise guru informs me that tides dictate a westerly course is required and an on the water start of 09:30; please be rigged and changed with picnics packed by 0915 to allow this.

Liz and Heather are planning to lay on a high tea for Paul Smith Memorial Day, July 18th. Anyone willing to volunteer to make scones would be gratefully appreciated, contact Heather or Liz.

Humphries Cup and Allen Cup Races for cadets Sunday 24th May

 This Sunday at 1230 our Under 18s can compete for the Humphries and Allen Cups (Allen Cup = U18s, Humphreys Cup = U14s). This is the only opportunity our youngsters get to compete directly with each other without the older members pushing them off the course. This will be a 2 race short series and may include a guide boat if the field needs it. There are huge trophies up for grabs.

Extracurricular activities 2015

As we start our busy season, I thought I would jump the gun on encouraging you all to support the more person-power intensive activities in the diary.  These are all events which add to our family club reputation, publicise the club, celebrate our facilities and location and are great fun.

I will place sign up sheets on the club noticeboard a suitable number of weeks prior to each event and encourage you all to keep an eye out, sign up and support our great club.

Come and try sailing - RYA Push the Boat Out - Saturday 16th May

On Saturday 16th May, between 1000 and 1600, Herne Bay Sailing Club will open our doors to newcomers who would like a taste of our fabulous sport. Our experienced members will take our guests out for taster sessions in one of a number of boats, both sail and power, and will explain the training available to make them confident sailors. Previous similar Open Days have been well-supported and great fun for club members and guests alike.

First Club Cruise - Saturday 2 May 1000

Weather permitting, the Club will cruise to Tankerton or Whitstable this Saturday - launching at 1000 to let the tide push us down for lunch - and back after lunch (HW 1227).  This means boats need to be rigged before 1000 please.

While I have volunteers for two safety boats, I need a further safety crew please.

Club boats will be available - please let me know if you wish to take one.
