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.

Our First Real Post Covid Social

On the 21st August over 40 of our members joined us for an evening of music, drinks and takeaway pizza on our beautiful balcony!

Check out the photos from the event.
