Members information for Whitstable Yacht Club

New members

If you are interested in sailing at one of the biggest and best sailing clubs in England then look no further. Situated less than 90 minutes from London, on the north coast of Kent at the mouth of the Swale Estuary, WYC offers sailing in sheltered waters at all times of the tide for catamarans, dinghies, and windsurfers. Yachts are moored in a nearby drying-out marina.

The Club organises racing every weekend from March to December as well as evening racing during the summer, and is a popular championship venue. We also have a Sailing Development programme for beginners and those who want to improve, and a thriving Cadet fleet for families and children.

Learn to sail

Whitstable Yacht Club is a recognised Royal Yachting Association Training Center and is lucky enough to have its very own Sailing & Windsurfing School, 'Wild Times'. More details can be found here, but don't forget that WYC members get a 10% discount on Wild Times courses!

For complete sailing novices the best port of call is the sailing school. Jason and his team will be able to get you up to race speed in no time.
