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 sailing calendar for details on racing, cruising and relaxed sailing for both dinghy and catamaran sailors supported by a fun social programme. Additionally we are an accredited RYA Training Centre offering a range of courses for all abilities. .

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.

Up until this year this May race series was called the Slavery Series, but in recognition of the horrors of Modern Day Slavery we have this year renamed it the Sailing Against Slavery Series. S

2019 Sailing and Training Programmes - including Open Day

Our 2019 Sailing and Training programmes have now both been issued.  

This year we are offering a broader range of sailing events that provide better links to our training and social programmes. This means Saturday sailing, more fun events and more events that cater for beginner and intermediate sailors that will help bridge the gap from the recently trained to those hardened old salts!  Saturdays will be more laid back with Sundays generally focused on racing. We hav

Laying Up Supper

A great evening was had by 100 members and friends at the Marine on the 1st December as we celebrated a great season for which we have much to shout about. Terrific racing, reinvigorated training (thanks North Shore!) an up and coming youth section (us experienced sailors need to watch out...) and plenty of activity both on and off the shore. Membership booming and recognition through the RYA members survey that we are one of the best clubs in the south east
