WYC offers sailing in sheltered waters at all times of the tide for catamarans, dinghies, and windsurfers with yachts in nearby creeks which dry out.

Congratulations to Nia Crockford

Nia Crockford We're pleased to announce that Nia Crockford has been selected by the Trustees of the RYA SE Youth Training Fund to be awarded a Coaching Bursary to continue her instructor training. The bursary will fund Nia to obtain her Race Coach Level 2 qualification. Nia (pictured above at Pirate Day during Whitstable Week) has been a popular feature of the Cadet and Family sailing sessions this year, coaching and entertaining the WYC cadets, and has been a key driver in the increase of young people taking part over the year.
