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.

Coronavirus update

Coronavirus prevention at TBSC - 15th July 2020

Using guidance from the RYA and Sport England we have developed a plan for a phased return to normality. This builds on the Overall Covid Risk Assessment for the club, the Unsupported Sailing Guidance document we issued out mid-May in our membership, and provides a path to a slow re-opening. Our initial steps in May were to allow unsupported Sailing, followed by the completion of the winter works in June. In July we have managed t
