Margate Yatch club

Margate Yacht Club, located in the London and South East region, recently commemorated its 90th anniversary.  The club is hugely proud of its diverse and inclusive community and continues to work hard to ensure everyone feels sailing is accessible them. The club has a huge number of active female sailors, a strong LBGTQ+ presence, a varied age group membership, along with those who have a socio-economic background and members who have a range of disabilities. The club introduced a youth sailing squad and, in a few years has grown to having 10-15% of the membership being active youth members.
