Welcome to Margate Yacht Club a family friendly, inclusive and welcoming Club.
Interested in further details, learning to sail or becoming a member then please contact us.
Dinghy Sailing is the Club’s primary activity. We have taster sessions to introduce people to sailing for the first time, run RYA courses to train and coach sailors and have an active recreational and race sailing programme.
We have cruising members with yachts based in Ramsgate, the Medway and the Mediterranean. Members participate in the annual Ramsgate Week yachting event and the Club has an annual trip to the Norfolk Broads, sailing traditional Broads cruisers.
We do have a cadet training programme to introduce our younger members to sailing. Sessions are held in the sheltered and safe waters of the harbour for a limited number of children.
Sailing need not be an expensive sport; the Club has sailing clothing and a selection of dinghies for use by members. Many current members require ‘crew’ to sail and are happy to take inexperienced sailors on the water; complete beginners can usually get on the water with favourable weather conditions.
