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.
