Want to try dinghy sailing?
Looking for a friendly club?

Situated in the lively coastal resort of Herne Bay, Hampton Pier Yacht Club offers every facility for the keen dinghy sailor. We have a full programme of dinghy racing, cruising and fun sailing with members of all ages and abilities sailing in the open waters close by the old stone pier at Hampton in Herne Bay.

The Club was founded over 40 years ago and has since developed into a modern and well equipped sports facility with a keen and active membership. Ours is a well managed, friendly Club and our aim is to be the sailing club of choice for local families.

Our main activity is dinghy racing but the Club also serves as a useful base for those who just prefer sailing their boats in a safe, controlled environment.

It is not necessary to be a skilled sailor to join our Club or even know how to sail. The Club has a number of boats which members can use whilst training.

Members benefit from ample boat parking and easy access to the beach launching area. A concrete ramp and electric winch make launching and recovering even the largest dinghies a simple process. Free car parking is available nearby.

Safety of our members remains a number one priority. The Club has well equipped safety patrol boats on the water at all times during Club events with VHF radio links to shore.

With a comfortable Clubroom and bar our varied social programme complements sailing activities and ensures the Club is used all year round.
