    Wear casual clothes, trainers and bring dry clothes to change into. No wellies

     as they fill with water. Bring hat, gloves and anorak if it's cold, sun cream

     and sunglasses if it's sunny.


     Erith Yacht Club is on Manor Road, DA8 2AD. Directions can be found on 



    You'll be welcomed by our Shoremaster and Volunteers who'll help you 

    decide which boat would suit you. Then you'll be kitted out with a lifejackets and 

    waterproofs if it's raining.


     We'll take you onto the pontoon and then into the boat, using the

     hoist if necessary.


     Next the fun part - we'll go sailing. You'll sit comfortably and enjoy your first sail.


     After an hour or so, it'll be back to dry land for a warm drink (and a packed lunch 

     if you've brought one) and a chat with our Volunteers.
