Being based on the finest part of the tidal Thames, we are blessed with a wide open river, little river traffic, and no cluttered shoreline. It allows Erith Yacht Club to provide a wide range of sailing activities for cruisers and dinghies, catering for all abilities.

We organise internal club races for both cruisers and dinghies, as well as race against the other Thames-based clubs in what can be spirited and fun events. These open races usually involve a social event·on the Saturday evening, which is a great way of relaxing and getting to know members of other clubs.

Some members race their cruisers and dinghies at open events away from the club, such as class nationals, Round the Island Race, and the Royal Escape Race.

As well as racing, we organise social sailing. For yachts this includes short cruises to Limehouse or St Kats in central London, and holidays up the East Coast or over to The Netherlands.Sundown

 

The dinghies have the option to sail down river to Greenhithe, usually accompanied by yachts, for a meal and a drink in the pub, or up river for a picnic in Barking Creek. The Friday evening ‘Sundowners’ are run in the summer as an antidote to a week of work, when members sail as the sun sinks in the sky and afterwards relax in the bar with food. 

 

Ultimately, we try to encourage all members to take an active part in the events we organise through this varied programme.
