Cruiser Expedition to Tower Bridge


Our members regularly sail to other parts of the River Thames. Sometimes they sail up the East coast of the UK, or along the North Kent coast, but they also visit France and Belgium. There are some boats at EYC that have even made Atlantic crossings over to the Caribbean!

In March, Don, a member of EYC, visited Tower Bridge twice the same weekend. The first time he took two new members, and the second time he took three family members. Here are the photos from his first visit:

Moorings Complete and Allocated (2019)


All EYC members should have received this message, following successful completion of the moorings maintenance. We are hugely grateful to the Moorings Team who completed the moorings despite the barge This'll Do sinking!

I redacted the names and email addresses for use in the public domain.

You can find the 2019 Provisional Moorings Allocation here

Good Morning Everyone,
Many thanks to your Moorings Team who have worked so hard to get the
moorings ready for this season after the 'great sinking'. Well done
Please read the list with care and contact <EMAIL ADDRESS REDACTED> if you
have any questions and queries.  Xxxx REDACTED.

Hi REDACTED, could you please put out the provisional mooring list that I hope is
attached to this e.mail. It is only provisional so there may be some slight
changes when the final list goes out. We will allow about a week or so for
people to come back to me with any issues before sending the final list out.
When we know the depth of water at low springs, we may be able to move
another couple of boats over to the inner trot from the lower middle but we
dont want to do that until we're sure they won't go aground.
Thanks, REDACTED xxxx

This is fantastic news, since it truly marks the beginning of the EYC sailing season for cruisers.

Happy sailing everybody! cool

Push The Boat Out - big thank you to all the members who turned up today to help out. It made our lives easier to have so many at the Club and it was a pretty smooth process.

The people who came had a lovely time on and off the water, despite the odd rain squall. It was great to see such a mix of people come along to enjoy what we have to offer at the Club

If you're reading this and you tried sailing at EYC on Saturday, then thankyou as well for coming along. It would be great to see you again this coming Friday or any other time we're sailing.




Push The Boat Out day - Come and try Sailing


Erith Yacht Club invites you to come and try Sailing on Saturday 11th of May.


Link to Facebook event




Erith Yacht Club, DA8 2AJ






Saturday 11th May from 10am to 4pm



How much will it cost?





How do I book?


No need to book - simply turn up and register on the day and we will get you out on the water to try sailing.



 Do I need to have sailed before?

No sailing experience required! Some of the saltiest sailors in EYC will be on hand to take you sailing. You will be in good hands!


What can I do between outings?

The bar will be open from around lunchtime


What should I wear?

Wear old trainers or shoes you don't mind getting wet. Bring a spare set of clothes in case your arms or feet get damp. We can lend you waterproofs and buoyancy aids.


I want to sail, but I can't make it for the 11th

As a club, we offer beginner courses to both adults and youth and our membership will allow you to continue sailing in safe waters. If you visit the club when we're sailing, there will probably be someone there to take you out on the water in a dinghy or yacht. The best times for this are our Sundowners. You can find these on our Facebook page or sailing calendar

We hope to see you on the water!
