Tankerton Bay Sailing Club

Situated on the North Kent Coast, an area popular with sailors, the Tankerton Bay Sailing Club was formed in 1962. There is a friendly atmosphere, welcoming all ages and all abilities.

We sail most weekends from late March through to early November, enjoying dinghy and catamaran racing, cruising and relaxed sailing supported by a fun social programme 

As an accredited RYA Training Centre we offer a range of course plus "have a go" days and sailing experiences for all abilities.
