An RYA registered club, we are a community club run by our volunteer members. Dinghy Sailing is the Club’s primary activity.
You don't need to have any previous experience of sailing to become a member. We have instructor sessions held in the sheltered waters of Margate Harbour throughout the sailing season which are open to adult and younger members to introduce sailing for the first time or refresh sailing skills.
We run cadet (youth) training sessions from May to August every Wednesday at 5-7pm for 8-16 year old members £5/session (members) £15/session (non-members).
Novice adult and cadet (youth) members can crew with more experienced members on our relaxed dinghy racing days to have time on the water with a safety boat and put the skills learnt into practice.
Sailing need not be an expensive sport; the Club provides wet suits, buoyancy aids and helmets free of charge and charges only £5 per day for the use of a club dinghy.
Adult membership costs £95 per adult per year*
Cadet (youth) membership costs £6 per year
Cadets must have a parent join as a member and must have a responsible adult in attendance at the Club while on site
Non sailing membership £53
A non sailing membership is available for Canoes, Kayaks, Sup boards, Windsurfs and Kite Surfing. Non sailing members have access to club facilities, inc the club house and the boat yard and most importantly a community of people who want to get out on the water together safely. Equipment storage is £20 per year per craft/rig.
