Call it a coincidence of calendars, an alignment of the planets, or a carefully thought out plan to promote sailing as a major sport in Thurrock, we have a HUGE week of sailing heading towards us in August!

TYC and Scouts

Thurrock Yacht Club hosted an evening of yacht sailing for Thurrock Scouts on Thursday 27th June. On a warm and breezy summer evening, a number of club members made themselves and their boats available to give the Explorer Scouts a taste of sailing on the open tidal waters of the Thames.

Whether through participation or spectating from a distance, we hope that you are enjoying the racing this season. You may have noticed that we have started recording and publishing the scores with a computer system this year.

We are proud to announce the launch of Sail Thurrock, a collaboration between Thurrock Yacht Club and Grangewaters Outdoor Education Centre which seeks to increase participation in the sport of sailing in Thurrock.

The wind has disrupted the start to our racing programme!  You can take that a few ways I imagine!!!
