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.

Trophy winners 2015

Here is the full list of trophy winners for 2015:

Prize Giving (part 2) and the annual HBSC dinner dance

Thank you to Alistair, Georgie and Lou for organising a great night at the Walpole Bay Hotel, and for Harvey for an entertaining prize giving speech. 

Slipway Upping

Thanks to 46 club members and one guest the slipway was lifted and scraped in double quick time. Thank you to everyone who came along and helped. If you weren't able to make it, the first winter working party is on 21st November. 

2015 Prize giving (part 1)

The slipway upping supper saw sailing secretary Harvey present the first group of trophies to their well-deserved winners. Congratulations to the winners. 

Here are some photographs of those trophy winners able to attend the supper:

AGM and Sailing Matters/Boat owners meeting of 22nd November

Dear members,

This is a reminder for you of the AGM and Sailing Matters/Boat Owners meeting to be held on 22nd November as initially advised to you in the Notice Letter of 15th October 2015 issued by email of that date.

As advised in the Notice letter, the poster identifying those Committee members willing to stand for re-election next year and advising of the two key posts that need to be filled for next year i.e. Honorary Secretary and Sailing Secretary, has been posted on the noticeboard within the clubhouse.

Annual Dinner Dance and Prize Giving, 7th November

Just a last minute reminder of arrangements for next Saturday night;

We meet at 6:30 for 7:00 pm in the downstairs bar of the hotel which is reserved exclusively for Herne Bay Sailing Club.

Would each person please bring along a £1.00 coin on the night!!!

You do not need to bring a raffle prize.

Slips will be available at the bar for pre-ordering wine for your dinner table.

For those travelling by coach, the coach will leave the Clock Tower car park at 6:00 pm with a stop a few minutes later opposite the Hogben’s residence on Canterbury Road.

Slipway repaired - sailing available this Sunday


After some quick exec decisions, the slipway was repaired this afternoon rather than being lifted.  This means sailing is now available tomorrow, although racing will not count towards series or champs results due to the notice.


End of season chores - including lifting the slipway

The forecast for this weekend is looking favorable for a last sail after which it is all hands on deck to prepare the club for the winter.

Update: Improvers session this Saturday (17/10/15)

This Saturday will be a regular  Improvers session. Contra to previous announcements boat stacking will take place along with slipway upping. So after the exciting blow of last week and the downwind practice we all had I recommend everyone coming down for the last Improvers of the season and see the season out with a good sail.

They came first in two races, consistently within the top three in the contributing races  and finished the championship in second place. A fantastic way to end the season.
