Tankerton Bay Sailing Club - Kent

Join us at TBSC

13th July 2020 - We are currently closed for new membership applications due to the Covid-19 pandemic but are creating a waiting list. If interested please complete the contact us form and we will then be back in touch with you as we start to open more fully in the coming weeks and months.

If you are thinking of joining us, well that's great. You can always use the Contact Us form to make some enquiries, but why not come down for a visit when we are sailing. We'd love to show you around our club, have a chat and hopefully answer any questions that you might have. We are a small but very friendly club, so are generally only open when some sailing is going on, and that usually means on a Weekend. Best check on the 'Fixtures' which you can find under the 'On the Water' menu, to make sure your journey won't be wasted..

And don't worry, if you do join, you don't have to take part in the racing. We cruise and can offer training or you can just have a leisurely sail about.

We are run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of all members, so everyone is asked to cover a small number of duties to keep things running.

In addition to the usual 'sailor(s) with their own boat' type of memberships, we now have 2 other types:

In the panel below you'll see the various membership costs. You'll also see attached a form that provides the reduced fees should you join after 1st June. If all of this has left your appetite whetted, and you'd like to join us, then why not grab an Application Form and get things started?

Please download the application form below. You can either print off a copy and post it to the address on the form. Or download and save a copy to your PC/Laptop, update it and email it to membership_secretary@tbsc.co.uk
