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 courses for all abilities. 

If you would like to find out more about what we do, then please use the contact us form.

With 2022 being our Diamond Jubilee, we are always on the look our for memories, mementos and old photos from bygone years. We already have a rich archive, but if you were a former member or know someone who was and has something interesting to share, please contact us.
