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. 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.
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. We run a number of training activities for new members every year and we have nominated General Sailing days where you can either go out with a more experienced sailor or attempt your first solo outings The Club has a number of boats which members can use whilst training - see Membership page for more details.
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.
