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. See our 2020 sailing calendar for details on racing, cruising and relaxed sailing for both dinghy and catamaran sailors supported by a fun 2020 social programme.

As an accredited RYA Training Centre we offer a range of courses plus "have a go" days and sailing experiences for all abilities. New 2020 dates just issued

If you would like to find out more, then please use the contact us form. Better still, why not call in at the club on a weekend during the sailing season, when we would be pleased to talk to you about our club, and to answer any questions that you may have.
