Tankerton Bay Sailing Club - Kent

Join us at TBSC

If you are thinking of joining us, well that's great. You can always use the Contact Us form to make some enquiries, but why not come down for a visit when we are sailing. We'd love to show you around our club, have a chat and hopefully answer any questions that you might have. We are a small but very friendly club, so are generally only open when some sailing is going on, and that usually means on a Weekend. Best check on the 'Fixtures' which you can find under the 'On the Water' menu, to make sure your journey won't be wasted.

We are run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of all members, so everyone is asked to cover a small number of duties to keep things running.

In addition to the usual 'sailor(s) with their own boat' type of memberships, we now have 2 other types:

In the panel below you'll see the various membership costs. 

If all of this has left your appetite whetted, and you'd like to join us, then just complete the Online Application Form and get things started. We will get back to you as soon as we are able.  

Please be aware that in line with our Club Premises Certificate conditions, new members have to wait two days from the acceptance of thier application before they receive any membership privilages.

Any question please please email membership_secretary@tbsc.co.uk
