Learn to Sail a Yacht

This group, which meets each day during the last week of the month (weather and tides permitting), is hosted by Geoff Haffenden on his yacht Claire Louise, which is moored at Chatham Marina. Geoff is a fully qualified Yacht Master. The Claire Louise is a modern 12m yacht, certified to carry up to 12 persons. However, numbers are limited to the Skipper plus 3-4 other people to enable maximum participation. Group members get to steer, handle the sails, learn the rules of the road and some basic navigation. It is weather dependent.

Sailing takes place between April and September, with a full day's sailing in the safe waters of the Thames Estuary and the River Medway. A typical day would start at the Marina around 10am, with a sail down the Medway, a brief stop for lunch in one of the creeks, returning to Chatham by 4.30pm/5.00pm. There will be a small charge for participation.
