About Whitstable Yacht Club


Just beginning?

Whitstable Yacht Club Cadets are 8 to 18 year olds who must either be a family member or have an individual Cadet membership. Experienced sailors are encouraged to take part in race training sessions and enter club races at the weekends.

It is preferable for Cadets to have their own boats: Toppers, Mirrors, Bytes, Fevas and 29ers are the most popular classes.

The Cadet section is run by volunteers, generally parents. We need all the help we can get! If you are an experienced sailor or willing to help with rigging, launching, rescue boat duties or washing down please make contact.

Older cadets are encouraged to take powerboat Level 2 and safety boat and RYA first aid certificates.


RYA courses at Cadet level: info [at] or telephone 01227 282800.
