OPEN DAY 2018: Saturday 19th May.

Come for a taster sail on our Open Day on Saturday 19th May between 1pm and 4pm. There is no need to book – just turn up and you will be able to have a sail with an experienced Club member in a dinghy or cruiser. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear suitable clothing and trainers. The Club has buoyancy aids and waterproof clothing that you can borrow if the weather requires it.

Come and chat to members about what the Club has to offer both novice and more experienced sailors.

Creek Week 2018: Starting 26th May.

Join us for a few days (or the whole week!) exploring the waters of the Medway and the East coast.

Local Waters

The Thames at Gravesend is a river of contrasts. Busy commercial waterway. Historic entrance to London. Sheltered backwaters. Gateway to the sea.

Dinghy destinations include Greenhithe for a swift pint at the Pier Hotel, or down to Holehaven or the Medway. But we have one or two more adventurous dinghy owners who like to go much further afield.

For the cruisers a typical weekend trip is to one of the creeks on the River Medway; longer trips may involve the rivers and creeks of the East Coast, or a trip to France or Holland, or down-channel to Brittany or Cornwall. But cruisers have voyaged much further from GSC!

There are some organised cruises, such as "Creek Week" - exploring the creeks of the Medway and the East Coast. Groups of members also arrange cruises in company - for example to Holland.

Hiring club dinghies

Gravesend Sailing Club has three Wayfarer dinghies for hire by members by the day - Stanley, Jacob and Freedom. You should have RYA Level Two or above, and a knowledge of tides. Please contact the Training Principal ( to hire boats, or if you are logged in to the website as a member, click here.
