Erith Yacht Club is situated on the edge of the Crayford Marshes just to the east of Erith in Kent. It overlooks the stretch of the Thames known as Erith Rands, a wide part of the river providing excellent sailing and racing.
Erith Yacht Club
EYC is within easy distance from the M25, Dartford Crossing and QE Bridge, as well as the A2.
Coming to Erith you turn into James Watt Way and then take the third exit up Manor Road. Continue to the top of the road and go straight over the mini roundabout (first exit). Take the left down the narrow road immediately after the trading estate entrance.
There is a regular Southeastern Trains service to and from London Bridge that stops at Erith Station. From there it is about a 20 minute walk along Manor Road to the Yacht Club, or you can get the 99 Bus from the town centre (to Bexleyheath), which will drop you off just past the mini roundabout at the top of Manor Road.
An almost equally close station is Slade Green, with the 99 Bus (to Woolwich) passing that will also drop you off at the same mini roundabout.
The direct bus that takes you to the top of Manor Road from Bexleyheath or Woolwich is the 99 Bus. Other buses, such as the 469, 229 and 428, will take you to Erith town centre, from where you can walk or get the 99 Bus.
Erith Yacht Club will be found on the left bank of the River Thames when going up river from Gravesend and Dartford. The brick and glass-fronted clubhouse dominates that part of the landscape. In front is a half-tide pontoon, which is accessible about 2 hours each side of high water (tidal range and boat draught depending). It makes an ideal break when travelling to or from London. The common VHF Channel used at the club is Channel 37A.
