Visitors to the Yacht Club are welcome, and we regularly host visiting sailors for the week, both from local Kent sailing clubs, and from as far afield as Yorkshire and Scotland. Whitstable offers some of the best sailing conditions in the south-east, with great fleet racing (especially the Tasars, Lasers and Cats), and the town is also a great holiday destination for shopping, restaurants, and pubs. There's plenty of space to park your boat, a great chandlery right next door, and you can find details of accommodation here
Wednesday is rest day for the series, but there'll still be plenty to do. Wednesday is a day for getting the families and cadets to the club for a Pirate themed day of shore based fun for the younger children, and on the water challenges for the older children.
At the club, there will be the children's bouncy castle from 10am, and pirate themed crafts and fun on the beach from 1pm. There will be a fun race from 2pm, with a cadet on every boat racing, and a set of on the water challenges for the cadets following the race. Come along and join the fun!
