Herne Bay Club Info


The Sailing Club is located at the Eastern end of the promenade. As you come down the hill from the last roundabout on A291, the road bears round to the left along the seafront, there is a right turn possible which takes you onto the promenade, take this. After 200 yards the club will be on your right.
