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.

2019 Sailing and Training Programmes - including Open Day

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

Membership booming and recognition through the RYA members survey that we are one of the best clubs in the south east

Last Sailing Day of the season

What a great day!

The 3rd November was the last sailing day of the year. We had a wonderful turnout with over 20 boats and probably around 35 people on the water....
In the Cat fleet, Tim and Ashten Blades came in 2nd on their Dart 18 and claimed their first long distance cats series. In the Mono fleet, Ted North also finished 2nd on the day which secured the mono long distance series. We are informed that this is his first series win in over 50 years of sailing! Well do
